PREFA CE 


W HEN I was commissioned to write this book I 
found it necessary to adhere rigidly to a definite 
policyon account of the limits of space. Primarily 
the book was written for the men and the satisfaction of 
the next of kin. The Regiment ,vas raised to fight the 
enemy; those things which helped to advance that cause 
and ",Tere a means to that end were given preference. 
Despite the necessity of condensation, no time has been 
omitted or glossed over ,vithout some reference to it, so 
that no man, no matter how short his association with 
the Regiment, will find a void where his interests centred. 
All the commanding officers kindly read those chap- 
ters of the book which included the time under their 
command. To them the author is especially grateful 
and in particular to Lieutenant-Colonel H. D. Lockhart 
Gordon D.S.O., who originally proposed this history and 
throughout its preparation gave, generously, many hours 
of his days and evenings in helping with various details. 
Also Lieutenant-Colonel W. R. Patterson D.S.O., whose 
long service ",-ith the Regiment cOlnbined ,vith his prodig- 
ious memory, was of the greatest assistance. 
Captain R. Innes-Taylor, formerly Adjutant of the 
Battalion, gathered together a large amount of informa- 
tion and prepared material which was of the greatest 
assistance. 
The Regimental \Var Diary was my guide; all dates, 
names and movements were taken from it and I was 
particularly fortunate in having one of the best Diaries 
of any Regiment in the Great 'Var, to consult. This is 
verified by the reference to it in the Army Quarterly, 
October, 192-1, which printed extracts and commented 
that, "one Adjutant of an overseas battalion possessed 
a bright style and used particularly crisp phraseology in 
compiling his Diary." The Adjutant referred to was 
xi 



xii 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 


Captain Gregory Clark, l\1.C., to whom I am indebted, 
not only for his work on the Diary, but for his many 
courtesies to me during the writing of the book. Captain 
G. D. Fleming, who succeeded Captain Clark in August, 
1918, maintained the high standard of the Diary. Ser- 
geant-Major Featherstonhaugh, \vho was orderly-room 
sergeant, with the Regiment from the first and respon- 
sible for the safe-keeping of the records, was of invalu- 
able assistance in checking the proofs. Lieutenant- 
Colonel G. F. McFarland lent me his excellent personal 
Diary and read the manuscript. 
The Historical Section of the General Staff, Ottawa, 
kindly provided copies of various documents and pre- 
pared other material and were at all times ready to pro- 
vide assistance. The page-proofs of the book were read 
by the Section and numerous suggestions and minor 
inaccuracies pointed out. For the assistance afforded, the 
author is greatly indebted to the Director and Staff of 
the Historical Section. 
The maps were inspired by l\Ir. Emery Walker and 
dra\vn in the style of the cartographers of the seventeenth 
century by Mr. I. H. Kerr, a student attending the 
Ontario College of Art. I am indebted to Mr. Kerr for 
his faithful execution and meticulous adherence to detail 
and also for his artistic page-ends \vhich embellish the 
book. 
To the many Officers and men who helped me in 
various ways I tender my thanks and appreciation, only 
a few of whom I have space to mention; Major W. E. L. 
Coleman, l\1.C., Major M. M. Hart, M.C., and Major 
Victor Sifton, D.S.O., impartially advised me. 
I have tried to give the correct weight and perspec- 
tive throughout. To the best of my ability I have 
been, I trust, unbiased, neutral and just. 


S. G. BENNETT 



FORE WORD 


AFTER the operations in the area of Festubert and 
La Bassée Canal in 1915 where our casualties 
had been heavy, the Canadian Troops were mot'ed North 
to the JI essines Front and remained there during the 
winter of 1915--1916. 
All who were on this front well remember the numerical 
weakness of our Battalion.
, reduced by casualties to half 
their normal strength and holding against attack frontages 
proportional to a Battalion at full strength. They will 
recall all the general disheartening conditions; the 
incessant German shelling and discouraging silence of 
our guns due to the scarcity of ammunition; the never- 
ending demands for worl{ing parties to construct at night 
new trenches or recondition the old; the continual rains, 
increasing at times to such t'olume and violence that the 
worl. of one month would be washed away in one night; 
and the futility of our efforts to drive mines in this 
quagmire of a front. 
Fighting did not lower the morale of our men, in fact 
it improt'ed it, but this unending struggle against the 
forces of J.Vature, the lack of warlnth and dry clothing, 
want of sleep and a dry place to sleep in, all began to 
hat'e an adverse effect on the spirits and courage of our 
gallant mud-caked fighters and diggers. 
EffectÚ'e censorship had dropped an im,penetrable 
curtain behind us, cutting off our view and knowledge 
xiii 



xiv 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 
of. any possible reinforcements to relieve us in our gral)e 
needs. We really began to wonder whether our people 
at home had forgotten us, or whether in sending one 
Division and one Cavalry Brigade to the Front Canada 
had made her one and only stake in this World's TV ar. 
Our minds assured us that such a situation could not 
exist; but our weary bodies reminded us that it did exist. 
Standing one day at a respectful distance from an 
unhealthy cross-Toad the censor's curtain suddenly lifted 
and we saw a column of men approaching, tall, well-built, 
clean of clothes and equipment, clean of face and hands-":'" 
something quite foreign to us in our surroundings. JVho 
were they) Our reinforcements at last, the C. M. R. 
Brigades, and of them the future 4th C. }'f. R. Battalion, 
the familiar faces of the men of Toronto, my home, and 
of whose deeds and sacrifices you read about in this book. 
The distant skirl of the pipes brought no greater relief to 
the besieged Garrison of Lucknow than did the sight of 
these men to us-the Advance Guard of the greater 
Canadian Forces to come. 
I n this n
anner I made my second acquaintance with 
the C. .JI. R.-my first during the South African TVar 
over twenty-five years ago. A mysterious organization, 
these C. 111. R., non-existent in Peace but cOlning to life 
in TVar, with territorial associations stretching from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific and embodying men of every walk 
in life, 'l'oluntarily tendering their services during a 
National peril and willing to sacrifice their all in their 
Country's service-the Canadian Fascisti. And as they 
arrived in South Africa years ago during the dark weeks

of that campaign where they brought material a.fJsistance 
and consolation to their distressed comrades, so they 
arrived in France bringing messages of hope and 
encouragement from our far-distant Canada. 
Later I had the honour to succeed General V. A. S. 
Williams as the Commander of the C. .J/. R. Brigade, 
composed of the 1st, gnd, 4th and 5th Battalions, which 
were subsequently embodied in the Srd Canadian Division 
as the 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade. Whilst under 
my Command as a Brigade in this Division, we fought the 
major offensive operations of the Somme, Vimy, and 
Passchendæle and the very costly defensive operations 
of the Y pre.
 Salient. In all these and other operations 
the C. M. R. contributed their full share towards General 
Sir Arthur Currie's proud claim at the termination of the 
war that "the Canadian Corps had never failed to gain 
t/zeir objectit'e in the attack, or permanently lost one yard 
of territory in the defence," and though I may be accused 
of prejudice I feel that during my Command of two years 
no other Brigadier was as f onunate as I in hat,ing 
such loyal and gallant Officers and men under him as the 
old C. M. R. 
j/ y best wishes to myoId comrades now living: and to 
those dead, may they rest in peace.

THE 4TH CANADIAN 
MOUNTED RIFLES 


CHAPTER I 


CANADA AND ENGLAND 


T HE Fourth Canadian l\Iounted Rifles undera uthoritv 
of the Department of l\filitia and Defence becam"'e 
a unit of the Canadian Expeditionary Force on 
November 5th, 1914.l\-Iajor-General F. L. Lessard, 
C.B., commanding l\lilitary District No.2 issued 
instructions that the personnel was to be drafted from four 
cavalry militia regiments of Ontario, a quota to be taken 
from the Goyernor-General's Body Guard, 2nd Dragoons, 
9th l\Iississauga Horse and 25th Brant Dragoons. The 
command ,vas given to Lieut.-Colonel Vaux Chadwick, of 
the Reserve of Officers, a fonner commanding officer of 
the 9th l\Iississauga Horse. The establishment called for 
twenty-eight officers and five hundred and seventy-seven 
non-commissioned officers and men. 
At the outbreak of war in August, 1914, cavalrymen 
'were among the first to volunteer their services and \vere 
disappointed when they learned that they 'would not be 
called up with the first contingent. They \vere told by 
the Government, ho-wever, that they ,vould be required 
eventually and the Governor-General, H. R. H. the Duke 
of Connaught, intimated that cavalry ,vould probably be 
needed in Egypt. \Vith this encouragement the Governor- 
General's Body Guard, commanded by Lieut.-Colonel 
Sandford Smith and the 9th MississaugaHorsecommanded 
bv Lieut.-Colonel H. D. Lockhart Gordon on their own 
i:rÎitiative opened voluntary training camps, the former at 
Aurora, Ontario, and the latter on the shore of Lake

Ontario, near Long Branch. These rival camps, work- 
ing toward the same goal, were soon training men, acquir- 
ing equipment and preparing for the future without 
any official authority, but with general approval. 
The City of Toronto and Lieut.-Colonel H. C. Cox, 
Honorary Colonel of the l\fississauga Horse, kindly 
purchased about two hundred horses to mount these 
regiments, which enabled them to commence their eques- 
trian training. 
As soon as authority was given, Lieut.-Colonel Vaux 
Chadwick began to organize the new regiment, which 
was first known as the Ontario l\founted Rifles. Subse- 
quently it became the 4th Canadian l\Iounted Rifles and 
was brigaded with the 5th and 6th Canadian l\:founted 
Rifles in the 2nd Canadian Mounted Brigade, the 5th and 
6th C. M. R. being raised in the Eastern Townships of 
Quebec and the Maritime Provinces. The quota from 
the Mississauga Horse and the Body Guard was avail- 
able at once and moved to the Exhibition Grounds on 
November 16th, followed by the Brant Dragoons on the 
21st and the 2nd Dragoons on the 23rd. In order to 
assimilate the different units, each Squadron was com- 
posed of one troop from each regiment. 
The new regiment was first billeted in buildings of the 
Canadian National Exhibition. These buildings, erected 
to display the prize crafts and stock of the land, now did 
service in sheltering the officers and men and their horses. 
The men were of the first and best that Canada offered 
to the l\fother Country. They came from every ,valk of 
life and were of the same Inettle as those who pierced the 
Red River country or went to South Africa. Endo"Ted 
with native ability and characteristic ingenuity, they 
were soon to be trained and drilled into an efficient 
fighting force to stand beside the brawn of Britain and 
honourably acquit themselves. 
Material sacrifices made by this apparently care-free 
multitude were small compared to what was probably 
the greatest decision of their lives; namely, to give up the 
dut
T to their loved ones and accept the duty to their 
country. Once they had made the momentous decision

to answer the call to arms, the men took unto themselves 
the contagious cavalry spirit. They faced the rigorous 
and embarrassing physical examination and went on their 
first parade with mingled feelings of pride and ignorance. 
The old soldier felt the superiority of his experience, but 
he, too, was not without his emotions. Training commen- 
ced. with a vigour and enthusiasm which could be felt 
and sho,vn only by men physically fit and carefully chosen, 
who had volunteered with all the eagerness of :youth 
anxious to serve. 
In addition to the two hundred horses turned over to 
the Regiment about five hundred more were received. 
Unfortunately, or, perhaps, in a ,yay fortunately, no 
bridles or saddles ,vere available for some considerable 
time and in consequence this necessary equipment was 
borrowed from the l\Iississaugua Horse for the use of 
officers and troop guides. The men, of necessity, were 
trained to ride bareback, Indian fashion, ,vith improvised 
bridles and rope-bits and on one occasion attracted 
attention by going on a nine-mile route-march through 
the streets of Toronto, the entire regiment riding bare- 
back. They turned out for their first review by 
Iajor- 
General Sam Hughes, R.C.B., !\Iinister of l\lilitia, 
before the equipment arrived. Happily, however, the 
men wore great-coats to cover the deficiency in saddles 
and they handled their horses so ,veIl that the lack was 
barely noticeable. They trained for the first three 
months in this ,vay, which probably accounted for the 
excellent riding displayed, and for the number of prizes 
the original men ,yon in overseas tournaments. 
All equipment was slow in coming and the men would 
have suffered considerably from lack of sufficient winter 
clothing had it not been for the kindness of many people 
in Toronto who provided felt boots and other urgent 
necessities so that it was possible to carry on training 
even in the coldest weather. Those days 'vere long, 
because they ,yere new. They are remembered because 
of the impressions which are vivid when not too dulled by 
tedium. How short in actual time they ,vere, compared 
with the days to follo,v! The life at the Exhibition

Grounds ,viII be recalled ,vith outstanding freshness 
because of its novelty; the unusually early rising, the 
ablutions, the cook house, the stables, the business of 
grooming, feeding and watering the obstreperous horses, 
all unaccustomed 'features of a new existence. 
l\lusketry practice, which gave some so much pleasure 
on the ranges at L?ng Branch, was to others a great 
trial. The use of a rifle was not a new thing to the many 
militiamen in the unit, but there were a few who nursed a 
painful shoulder for the first time. 
Early in the spring of 1915 the Governor-General, 
H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught, came from Ottawa for 
an inspection of the unit and commented in the most 
glowing terms upon its efficiency and splendid appearance. 
He remarked that he had rarely seen a regiment so well 
mounted. This was not surprising, as some of the most 
valuable hunters in the country ,vere amongst the uni- 
formly splendid mounts. There was a persistent rumour 
that the Regiment was for Egypt, to be brigaded under 
General Maxwell, and after the inspection everyone felt 
that it was the last thing preparatory to leaving. There 
was great disappointment when this proposal was not 
carried out. Following this shattered hope caIne an order 
which was even more disheartening. The Regiment ,vas 
called upon to supply horses as chargers 'for the officers 01 
the Second Canadian Division, then leaving for overseas. 
No order could have been more discouraging. To be 
given a strange horse, to get acquainted with him by 
feeding, grooming, learning to ride hiIn and caring for 
him, and then suddenly to lose him, was a bitter pill. 
l\Iany a man, as he toiled over his horse or cleaned his 
saddlery, dreamed of the day when he \\Tould ride him 
in France ,vhere he ,vould have to rely upon his stamina 
and training to carry him in action. 
In l\fay, 1915, the Regiment was asked to volunteer for 
overseas' service as a dismounted unit. There 'were 
many regrets, naturally, in abandoning the horses; never- 
theless, the men were eager to get to the field of action 
and so, rather than kick their heels forever in a training- 
camp, three thousand miles from the guns, they accepted

the inevitable as gracefully as possible. Shortly after- 
wards all were moved to Kiagara-on-the-Lake, where 
training ,vas pursued under continued difficulties. The 
Regiment was over-strength in officers and men, but only 
half-strength in horses. This unhappy condition ,vas 
accentuated when orders were received to proceed to 
V alcartier, with only enough horses to bring the estab- 
lishment to that of an infantry unit. Thus a second 
parting with horses was made. Regrets at this time had 
some compensation, as it meant a move nearer the theatre 
of war. 
The Regiment arrived at V' alcartier in June and at once 
joined with the 5th and 6th Canadian l\Iounted Rifles to 
form the flnd Canadian l\Iounted Rifles Brigade, under 
Colonel C. A. Smart. A.t Yalcartier, the command 
changed. Lieut.-Colonel Vaux Chadwick, who had never 
become reconciled to the Regiment being a dismounted 
unit, ,vas transferred to Headquarters on June 23rd and 
appointed Brigade l\Iajor of the 7th Overseas Infantry 
Brigade, composed of French Canadians and units fron1 
the l\Iaritime Provinces. Later on he raised and trained 
the 124th Overseas Battalion, which was another unit 
recruited from the Governor-General's Body Guard and 
l\Iississauga Horse. This Battalion he commanded in 
France. The \vonderful training in discipline and the 
determination shown by Lieut.-Colonel Vaux Chadwick 
tha t nothing should be left undone in the way of prepara- 
tion' bore fruit in the noble stand made by the Fourth 
C. l\I. R. in its first action on June 2nd, 1916. In succes- 
sion to Lieut.-Colonel Chadwick came Lieut.-Colonel 
Sandford F. Smith, \vith Lieut.-Colonel H. D. Lockhart 
Gordon as Second-in-Comlnand. The Regilnent carried 
out cavalry drill on foot and did brigade manæuvres. 
The Inen found their month's drilling rather trying after 
the loss of their horses, but many pleasant escapades can 
be recalled which helped to pass the time. 
The famous drag hunts of the Canadian l\lounted Rifles 
will be relnembered with mixed feelings. They \vould 
start with an innocent canter which would develop into a 
mad gallop through a ,,
ood followed by wonderful

"fencing" on the flat. Then Lieut. D. l\IacKay would 
invariably challenge an unsuspecting officer to join in a 
race to the finish. By the time they were going too hard 
to pull up they .would come suddenly to a creek too wide 
to jump that ran into the Valcartier River. The first 
plunge would land the horses up to their chests; the 
next moment they had to swim and when attempting to 
climb up the opposite bank the majority of the riders 
would lose their seats and roll backwards into the water. 
Captain W. V. Sifton swears he had to swim the river to 
save his life and Captain Allan Taylor claimed that he 
received the marks of a horse's hoof in the middle of his 
back when he was at the bottom of the creek. 
The repeated rumours of sailings and getting prepared 
to leave Canada kept everyone in a state of hopeful 
enthusiasm. Speculations as to the future, rumours and 
conjectures were soon consummated in definite orders. 
The long eight months of training in Canada ,vere near 
their end. An increasing zeal prior to the expected embark- 
ation was apparent, and when, on the 9th of July, 1915, 
a party of one officer and forty men sailed for England 
with the horses of the 2nd Canadian l\Iounted Rifles 
Brigade, the men realized that it would not be long 
before they, too, ,vould take the journey to 'which they 
had so long looked forward. 
Early in July, H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught made 
his last inspection of the Regiment and on July 18th the 
brigade ,vent aboard the transport awaiting them at 
Quebec. The S. S. Hesperian carried the 4th and 5th 
Canadian l\Iounted Rifles and the Brigade Headquarters 
Staff. At last they ,vere on their ,yay to England. 
The transport stole noiselessly down the river past the 
Isle d'Orleans and into widening banks, leaving behind 
on the horizon the historic Citadel; its mystic charm and 
mediæval atmosphere became lost in the rolling purple 
crests of the Laurentians. The twinkling lights in the 
white cottages nestling on the river's edge beaconed the 
troops along the winding shores of this ancient river 
whose restless waters for three centuries had borne armies 
to and from Europe. The embracing mountains .were

illuminated in turn by a gorgeous sunrise or an incom- 
parable sunset until dank depressing fogs rose from the 
Banks. For several days the mist delayed the voyage, 
but \vhen it lifted the desolate mysterious landscape soon 
faded into the hazy horizon of the Atlantic. Submarines 
were active, but even though these men had lmown that 
the very boat * on which they felt so secure was doomed to 
be torpedoed by the Germans they would have treated 
this latent menace in their usual frivolous manner. 
As a precaution against submarines extra watches \vere 
kept. All portholes were closed and darkened at night. 
No lights were allowed which lent a mysterious and eerie 
atmosphere as the ShIP ploughed through the darkness of 
the night. Even though there were fatigues, guards and 
,va tches t
 perfonn, the passage was a gay climax after 
months on land. 
1\' evertheless, it was \vith feelings of interest and excite- 
ment that they came into view of the shores of old England. 
The transport steamed into the roadstead of Plymouth 
Sound, ,vhich was receiving back younger generations of 
forbears who, a century before, had sailed from it. 
Romance ,vas developing rapidly in the lives of these 
young grandsons of the l\lotherland. On July 29th the 
Regirnent disernbarked and entrained for Shorncliffe. 
The interest of the men was absorbed in the new and 
strange things which confronted them at every turn; the 
trains, the railway carriages, the hedges, the green fields 
and winding lanes. 
The troops detrained that night and marched into tent 
billets at Dibgate Hill. Training recommenced; route 
marches were Inade along the macadam roads of Kent; 
manæuvres were carried out on the beautiful green 
downs overlooking the English Channel; musketry was 
practised at Hythe, \vhere the regirnent Inade the highest 
average of all Canadian regiments that shot there. This 
intensive training was punctuated with the inevitable 
"leave" to London. l{ecreation was found in regimental 
sports and concerts, or in the much frequented canteens. 


* The S. S. Hesperian was aftenmrds torpedoed and sunk by the Germans, 
while returning on her second voyage after conveying the 4th 0.11.R. to England.

4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 


After t\yO months at Dibgate the Regiment, on September 
23rd, moved to Cæsar's Camp. Here the men received 
their 'Yebb equipment, ammunition and all the essentials 
of actual \varfare. Probably nothing was so significant 
in all these young soldiers' preparation as receiving their 
identification discs. Not even the field dressing or the 
rifle and its bayonet had the same sobering effect or was 
so indicative of the seriousness of the conflict in which 
they \vere about to participate as the reception of these 
little metal discs. The last days of final preparation 
were calm and serious days, camouflaged under a veneer 
of cheery conviviality. 
Thus, after three very full months spent in England, the 
Regiment found itself on the eve of departure fit and ready 
for active service. On Sunday evening, tbe 24th of 
October, 1915, the men, in full marching order, proceeded 
to Folkestone on their way to France. A band played 
them along the road over which thousands had already 
tramped. The cheery songs, the witty quips and jocular 
drollery lightened the bulging packs and heavy equip- 
ment. The church bells were ringing in the channel port. 
The people from the roadside offered encouraging fare- 
\vells and cheered them until they disappeared along the 
quay and crowded on board the waiting packet-boat. 
Another great moment had arrived. The long months 
since enlistment were forgotten in the excitement of 
embarkation. The endless labyrinth of thoughts that 
crowded the minds of these men were confused by their 
strong emotions; memories of families, sweethearts and 
old associations were mingled with efforts to visualize the 
uncertain future; cheerful optimism was disturbed by 
solemn reflections; Spartan-like stoicism was blended 
\vith philosophical fatalislll. 
In the \vaning light of this October Sunday evening 
the ship, \vith its living cargo, slipped away from the gull- 
swept jetty into the s\yell of the channel, and sped for 
the chalky cliffs of France.

FRANCE AND THE TRENCHES 


D ARKKESS had fallen ,vhen the transport glided 
into the old port of Boulogne, which had 
become one of the great funnels into which men 
and materials were poured for the British front. 
Disembarking at ten o'clock the Regiment 
marched through the old-fashioned fishing town to 
St. l\fartin's Camp, a large base-depot on the hills 
overlooking the town. Here the troops resteà for thirty- 
six hours, becoming acquainted with the estaminet and 
café, tasting the raw cider, mild beer and wines of 
the country. l\Iany saw for the first time the weather- 
beaten Frenchman in his baggy corduroy trousers and 
heavy clogs, or the fisher-woman in her quaint white 
bonnet a"nd wooden shoes, or the teamster walking beside 
his enormous two-wheeled cart drawn by a splendid 
tandem of native dappled Boulonnais. 
On October 26th the Regiment entrained at Boulogne 
and went "up the line." The men had their first 
experience of a French troop-train with its little trucks, 
their capacity plainly marked on the outside: "40 
Iwmrnes, 8 chet'aux. " .A. few first-class carriages provided 
for the officers bore the marks of a year's campaigning. 
At every stop men were out of the trucks to stretch their 
legs or to boil water for tea. The short shrill whistle of 
the engine or a piercing blast on the guard's cowhorn sent 
thelll scrambling reluctantly back to discolnfort. At 
Bailleul the Regiment detrained and marched to rest 
billets three miles from the town, ,vithin ear-shot of the 
guns. This short train journey marked a third mOlnen- 
tous move. It ,vas more tl]rilling than the last and was 
surpassed only by the final great stage-the file through 
the communication trench into the front line.

4TH CANADIAN l\fOUNTED RIFLES 


Oct. 
1915 


The First Canadian Division had been in France 
nearly a year and the Second Division a month, 'while 
the Third 'was not yet formed. Its nucleus, ho,vever, 
,vas in the form of corps troops composed of the Princess 
Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, ,vhich had been 
recently withdrawn from the 27th Imperial Division, the 
Royal Canadian Regiment, the 42nd Royal Highlanders 
of Canada and the 49th Battalion. The 1st and 2nd 
C. 1\1. R. Brigades also became corps troops, and subse- 
quently "yith the Canadian Cavalry Brigade (dismounted) 
caIne under command of Brig.-General J. E. B. Seely, 
1\1.P., late Secretary of State for \Yar, and 'were known 
as "Seely's Force." 
The Transport, \vhich had been sent on seyeral days in 
advance of the rest of the unit by ,yay of Southampton 
and Ie Havre, joined at Bailleul, having had an uneventful 
and tedious journey. 
On the 2nd of November the Regiment moved to the 
east
of Bailleul and went into Aldershot Huts, which were 
located a little to the south-west of Neuve Eglise in 
Belgium. They were attached to the First Canadian 
Division for final lessons on trench ,varfare, and for a 
week the squadrons alternately went into the trenches 
south of 
Iessines, looking into the little village of St. 
Yves. Each squadron had a forty-eight hour tour. 
1\lemories of the first time "in" vary with each indi- 
vidual; curiosity, attraction or repulsion, fear or indiffer- 
ence ,vere SOlne of the emotions. On the first tour many 
things 'v ere stamped strongly on the lnind of the recruit; 
the long winding communication trenches with their 
uncertain "duck-boards," the endless traverses, the 
pretty V erey lights, the dug-outs and shelters, the 
machine gun emplacements and silent sentries, the whine 
of bullets and explosion of shells. 
ow those vivid 
scenes are hazy in the memory; one relnembers only 
the sunny days, with bright poppies and blue cornflowers 
peeping over the para dos, while the mud and filth are 
forgotten. 
After returning to Bailleul for a few days' rest, ,vhich 
included bath-parades and regimental sports, the Regi- 



FRANCE A
D THE TRENCHES 


ment moved on November 22nd to Bulford Camp, and 
the Transport to English FarIn, half a mile a \vay. On 
the follo'wing day, Seely's Force relieved the 2nd Brigade 
of the First Canadian Diyision in the trenches at Hill 63, 
near Ploegsteert. This relief marked the first time the 
Regiment had assumed responsibility for the defence of a 
part of the British line in Flanders. The men spent four 
days in the front line and four in Divisional Reserve. The 
Unit moved back on December 9th to Corps Reserve, 
ÌInmediately east of the much-used tow'n of Bailleul, 
'where it remained until the end of the month. 
'Yith this tour the Regiment began to experience its 
first serious casualties. On Decelnber 1st, ,vhile in the 
forward area a shell burst over "A" squadron billets 
killing Private ,Yo I. Fulford and wounding five men. 
L.-Corporal H. B. Hodge died of ,vounds and was buried 
at St. Orner. He had been acting as Chaplain to the 
Regiment and "Tas one of fourteen clergymen ,vho served 
in the ranks of the 4th C.l\f. R. The Regiment had just 
taken over the front line "Then Private R. J. Craig was 
killed by a bomb while on duty in a listening-post in a 
for,vard sap. 
On December Srd a patrol discovered a German 
working party on the 'Vulverghem-
Iessines Road beyond 
the lo,v ground in the rather wide No-l\Ian's-Land on 
this sector. The next day it was discovered that a barrier 
had been erected across the road. The weather ,vas un- 
fa vourable, it had been raining for several days, visibility 
was poor and the artillery ,vas unsuccessful in an attempt 
to remove it. Consequently General Seely came into 
the lines and asked for volunteers to raid the barrier. 
The raiding party was to get prisoners for identification 
purposes, if possible; find out the reasons for such a 
barrier; make a reconnaissance and return "Tithin an 
hour. Lieutenant G. W. Rutter, a Sergeant, a Corporal 
and ten men of "C" Squadron volunteered. The party 
started about 10.00 p.m. and were supported by another 
party located in front of the trench and also by one in 
the trenches under Captain Donald )IacKay. The raid 
was to take place behind the screen of an artillery bom..;

bardment but unfortunately this dre,v the enemy's fire 
in a counter-bombardment and put the opposing troops 
on the alert. Lieutenant Rutter scattered his party, 
took one man and crossed the marshy ground to 
the barrier, making a complete reconnaissance, although 
entirely exposed to the enemy by flares and rockets 
which lighted the whole ground. Due to the bombard- 
ment there were several casualties. Captain J\;IacKay, 
Privates B. Tracey and R. Sears were killed and four 
men \vounded. The killed were buried in the Canadian 
Cemetery near Hill 63. Captain 'V. V. Sifton, ",-ho was at 
that time on the Brigade Staff ,vas also seriously wounded 
during the bombardment. Lieutenant Rutter was not 
long \vith the Battalion; he Iniraculously lived through 
the terrible bombardment of June 2nd, 1916, but ,vas so 
badly \vounded that he was permanently disabled and 
invalided out of the service. 
The first Christmas at the front ,vas passed in rest 
billets, the day being only slightly different from other 
days. The men made as much as possible of their Christ- 
mas dinner, comforts from home \vere distributed and in 
the afternoon a football match and other sports bright- 

ned this great day, the celebration of which seemed so 
Incongruous. 
On the last day of the year, Lieut.-General E. A. H. 
Alderson, C.B., Commander of the Canadian Corps, 
spoke to the officers on the re-organization*of thelVIounted 
Rifles. 'Vith the formation, on December 22nd, of the 
Third Canadian Division, commanded by l\Iajor-General 
l\Ialcohn l\Iercer, C. B., the six regiments of l\Iounted Rifles 
were converted into four battalions of infantry, Inaking 
the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Battalions of the 8th Brigade 
under Brigadier-General 'Tictor A. S. \Yillialns. The 
other two Brigades of the Division were the 7th, composed 
of the P. P. C. L. I., the R. C. R., the 42nd and 49th 
Battalions, and the 9th Brigade, constituting the 43rd, 
52nd, 58th and 60th Battalions. The command of the 
new 4th C. 1\1. R. Battalion was given to Lieut.-Colonel 


* The C. M. R. Regiment. though dismounted and acting as infantry, had 
continued on a cavalry establishment until the reorganization.

Saftdford F. Smith. In February Lieut.-Colonel Smith 
left to take command of the 3rd Divisional l\Iounted 
Troops and was succeeded by l\Iajor J. F. H. Ussher, 
who ,vas gazetted Lieut.-Colonel a few weeks later. 
The month of January, 1916, ,vas spent in learning 
infantry drill under instructors from the 7th Brigade. A 
visit by H. R. H. the Prince of 'Vales on the 27th enliv- 
eried this irksome month of drilling. In his shy and 
unassuming manner he was always enquiring of the com- 
manding officers if there ,vas anything that he could do 
" unofficially" for them. 
On February 1st, the 8th Brigade relieved the 3rd 
Brigade in trenches ".hich lay parallel to and south of 
the 'Yulverghem-Messines road. After three ,veeks spent 
in rebuilding, revetting and draining trenches in one of 
the most disagreeable months the men" came out" to rest- 
billets ,vhere they remained until l\Iarch 18th and then 
moved north to a large encampment of army huts known 
as "B" Camp, three miles to the east of Poperinghe 
and equidistant from the arc of the Ypres Salient. The 
transport lines were in an open field half a mile to the 
west. 
On l\lãrch 19th, the Regiment took over trenches in 
front of Zillebeke. Throughout the army they ,vere old 
and known as most unpleasant habitations, and bore 
the scars of many assaults in the efforts of the Germans to 
reach Ypres. The very name of the Salient was a night- 
mare to every man who knew it. Going in, the 9th East 
Surrey Regiment was relieved in Zillebeke-Bund, ,vhere 
safe dug-outs existed in the heavy earthworks which 
formed the ,vesterly shore on Lake Zillebeke and the 8th 
Queens were relieved in Sanctuary 'Vood on the night of 

Iarch 20th. The weather ,vas cold and ra,v; it had 
been sno,ving. Added to these unpleasant conditions were 
the discomforts of the sodden trenches. Everyone lived 
a rodent life; in the daytime, nothing stirred but at night 
the Salient 'vas a hive of moving troops and transports, 
entering in small groups to relieve and ration the men in 
the front line. l\Iachine guns raked the roads, shells of 
all descriptions enfiladed this strategic death-trap, high

explosives crashed on the pavé or fell in the tnwn of 
Y pres. The night was made more unreal by the flares 
and V'erey lights \vhich seemed to surround the mysteri- 
ous darkness. During the days in the front line, the 
men's lives were menaced by bombs and grenades. 
Dodging minnenwerfers and repairing their damage occu- 
pied many hours on duty. 
After four days, in "yhich four men were killed and five 
wounded,. the Battalion was relieved by the 5th C. 1\1. R., 
and moved to "Belgian Chateau" in Brigade Reserve, 
where they remained until the 28th, returning and doing 
another tour both in the front line and Brigade Reserve, 
until April 6th, when they ,vent back to "B" Camp. 
After a ,veek of rest in Divisional Reserve the Battalion 
took over from the 52nd Battalion in the right sub-sector 
of the same area. The next three weeks were equally 
divided between the front line, local support and Divi- 
sional Reserve. 
The Brigades of the Third Division ,vere shifted to 
different parts of this Sector, probably to familiarize 
them with the area, consequently on l\lay 7th the 4th 
C. 1\1. R. went into ne,y trenches
 the most northerly 
they had yet occupied. They were again in front of 
Zillebeke and in Sanctuary 'Vood, but looking up to\vard 
Stirling Castle. On their left was the" Gap" and" Appen- 
dix" and the village of IIooge and the Ypres-1\lenin Road, 
dividing the Third Canadian Division from the Guards Div- 
ision. The ,vater-logged soil did not permit of deep dug- 
outs in this low undulating country. The trenches ,vere 
built up above the surrounding ground and even then in 
many places the men crouched in water up to their knees. 
The weather was cold and wet and except for the ,vel- 
come braziers, improvised frolu oil-drums, life ,vould 
have been unbearable. Toward the end of the month 
the temperature suddenly became ,varmer, and the men, 
instead of being chilled to the marrow and grovelling in 
slime, ,vere now sweltering in the brilliant sunshine. The 
weather probably more than any other thing, affected the 
spirits and outlook of the luen; good "yeather enormously 
diminished their discomforts, though floods of sunshine

did not extinguish their irresistible tendency and privi- 
lege to "grouse" at the elements. 
For no apparent reason in the early hours of the 
morning of the 11th, the enemy bombarded the front 
line, support and communication trenches. It had the 
semblance of an impending attack but it dwindled into a 
d . " t f " T f " A " d " B " 
spora IC s ra e. wo men rom an 
Companies and three men from "C" Company were 
killed. Such a concentrated shelling was unusual at this 
time, except as a form of retaliation. The enelny seemed 
to be expending his ammunition registering on trenches 
and batteries and was not silenced when our guns raised 
their voices in protest to the unequal weight of ordnance. 
On l\fay 16th the Battalion left the protective foliage 
of Sanctuary 'Y ood. The leaves had come out again 
shading the men from the strong l\fay sun and from the 
thunder sho\vers, but happiest of all, hiding them from 
the man high up over the ridge, in his linen-white captive 
balloon. The relief was accomplished during the night 
\vithout casualties, an unusually fortunate relief. On 
nearing Y pres the trenches were left and the 
paths by the sides of the open roads taken to the town. 
Hellfire Corner and Shrapnel Corner were particularly 
unpleasant cross-roads. The Lille Gate and :\Ienin Gate 
'vere equally unsafe. It was not until the hollow, haunted 
tnwn of Ypres, ,vith its crumbled masonry of St. Pierre 
and St. J\iartin and the battered remains of the scarred 
tracery of the Cloth Hall were left behind, that the men 
felt the temporary relief from the dangers of the Salient. 
For two weeks the Battalion relnained in Divisional 
Reserve and enjoyed the bright sunlight. They had 
drill and bath parades and prepared themselves for their 
next 
ove. Little did they know for what they ,vere 
preparIng.

CHAPTER III 


SANCTUARY WOOD 


A BRIEF explanation of the situation on the 'Yes tern 
Front may help to explain the reason for the 
unprecedented bombardment and assault 'which 
almost annihilated the Battalion on its next 
tour in the front line. The great theatre of 
activity 'vas at 'T erdun, where the tenacious, gallant 
French \vere holding back insistent masses of Germans. 
To relieve the pressure on our sorely tried Ally, the 
British Higher Command began preparations for an 
offensive, ,vhich developed into the famous Battles of 
the Somme. The British took over more line; the 
newly formed British Fourth Army relieving many 
French troops from the Arras sector for the support 
of Le l\lort Homme. The enemy had two large con- 
centrations of reserves, one at Verdun and the other 
in the north. 'Vith the latter he launched another 
battle for Ypres on June 2nd, 1916. 'Vhether or not the 
Germans intended to make a further effort to reach the 
Channel or merely to engage in a counter-offensiye to 
employ the British, was not then known. From inform- 
ation subsequently received the operation 'vas not 
believed to be part of the general plans of the German 
Higher Command but rather the ambitious scheme of a 
Corps Commander anxious to regain favourable distinc- 
tion. 
The Battalion had finished one of its longest rests in 
Divisional Reserve. On l\Iay 31st it paraded after the 
evening meal in full marching order with gas-masks and 
iron rations. For the first time the men were taken to 
Ypres on a well-oiled train, showing no lights and making 
Ii ttle noise. They detrained outside Y pres and recog- 
nized again its un,yholesome odours; after reaching 
16 



SAKCTUARY WOOD 


Shrapnel Corner they turned east, past Railway Dug- 
Outs to Transport Farm south of Zillebeke. Here the 
guides of the 52nd Battalion appeared and led each com- 
pany into the trenches. The night ,vas quiet, except for 
an occasional flash of the guns; and dark but for the 
encircling flares which exposed the grizzled terrain or 
silhouetted a deserted ruin. " A" Company relieved 
the right Company, "D" Company the centre and "C" 
Company the left Company of the 52nd Battalion. "B " 
Company was in local support at Ypres near the Lille 
Gate. 
The line taken over that night, was in an old and 
familiar district. In the latter part of l\::Iarch the Bat- 
talion held the trenches which were no,v on their immed- 
iate left. They found themselves skirting the south- 
easterly edge of Armagh 'Vood and holding that strategic 
elevation, :\Iount Sorrel. On their right, separated by a 
gap in front of Hill 60, was the 2nd Brigade of the First 
Division and on their left the 1st C.1\I. R. Battalion 
straddled Observatory Ridge and at the depression near 
the southerly end of Sanctuary 'Vood came in touch with 
the P. P. C. L. I. of the 7th Brigade; the other battalion 
in the front line of this Brigade was the R. C. R., whose 
line was separated from the P. P. C. L. I. by the" Gap" 
a t the "Appendix" and ran north across the l\Ienin road 
through Hooge to join the 60th Imperial Division. Of 
the rest of the 8th Brigade the 5th C. 1\1. R., were in 
support in :1Iaple Copse and Railway Dug-Outs at 
Zillebeke-Bund and the 2nd C. 1\1. R. in Brigade Reserve. 
The 9th Brigade remained in Divisional Reserve. 
Daylight on June 1st disclosed clean and dry trenches 
which afforded the best cover and most comfort of any 
heretofore occupied. There were good fire-bays and 
many elephant-shelters with gas curtains protecting the 
spirit, if not the flesh. It was an unusually beautiful, 
clear, early-summer day and except for some definite 
shelling on Sanctuary 'Vood and the appearance of 
several captive-balloons, there was nothing to foreshadow 
an iInpending blow.

4TH CAKADIAN l\IOUNTED RIFLES 


just taken over from General Alderson the command o( 
the Canadian Corps. The large concentration of enemy 
troops, the amount of artillery which had been "register- 
ing" on vulnerable points for days past and the activity 
of the Germans in building ne,v trenches and saps were 
menacing, and had been worrying the Staff for some time. 
Visibility had been poor. Heavy mists had covered the 
industrious enemy for several days. Preparation against 
possible attack had been made, ne,v trenches and machine 
gun emplacements had been vigorously pushed fonvard; 
but despite a
 increasing vigilance no definite indications 
appeared as to the exact point of attack, or when it 
would be launched. 
On June 2nd, which at sunrise promised to be as other 
days, everyone ,vas about early preparing for a visit from 
the Divisional Commander, l\Iajor-General l\Iercer. 
About 6 o'clock, Lieut.-Colonel Ussher went around the 
front line, making a preparatory inspection and had 
returned down the communication trench to Battalion 
Headquarters to meet General l\Iercer and his A.D.C. 
Captain L. E. Gooderham, who were accompanied by 
Brigadier-General Williams, and the Brigade Orderly 
Officer, Captain Fraser. All left Brigade Headquarters 
shortly after dawn and arrived at Battalion Headquarters 
about 8 o'clock. Lieut.-Colonel Ussher met them there 
and escorted them at once towards the front line. It 
was a calm, beautiful and noticeably quiet morning. 
Suddenly, ,vithout warning, from a heavenly, peaceful 
sk
'" broke a deafening detonation and cloud of steel 
which had no precedent for weight and violence. Every 
conceivable type of gun, howitzer and trench-mortar 
around Ypres poured everything it had upon the Third 
Divisional front. The most extravagant imagination 
cannot picture such a downpour of destruction. Even 
those ,vho had tasted the bitterest in modern \\Tarfare 
,vere staggered by the violence of this onslaught. 
Nothing like it had been experienced heretofore and it is 
doubtful if its fierceness ,vas exceeded by any later bom- 
bardment. It continued in fullest intensity for four- 
and-a-half hours. The greatest concentration ,vas direc-

SANCTUARY '\VÜOD 


ted against the 8th Brigade, but even the trenches ,vhich 
were shelled the least becanle mere jagged scars, unfit for 
defence. That anyone lived through it is a miracle. 
Trenches were soon demolished, shelters caved in, the 
ground over ,vhich tall weeds and long grass had grown 
was ploughed, beaten and pock-marked by shells. 
Sanctuary 'Yood, Armagh 'Vood and l\Iaple Copse ,vhich 
a fe,v hours before were verdant woods were transformed 
into charred, jagged stumps. 
At 1 o'clock the bombardment ceased, but only as a 
signal for the prepara tion of further violence. The 
ground quivered and gently heaved and then came the 
volcanic roar of a mine. It hurled into the air a large part 
of the front line and its defenders. Sandbags, wire, 
machine guns, bits of corrugated iron and bits of men 
'were slung sky,vard. After this final eruption all was 
quiet, even our o,vn guns. Inlmediately the German 
infantrymen appeared in full equipnlent, with long spades 
slung over their backs. They advanced in large numbers 
with an air of assurance and confidence that all resistance 
had been removed by their artillery. 
As soon as the bonlbardment commenced, all realized 
that this ,vas an affair of prime importance. The men 
manned the fire-bays until blown out or buried under the 
debris; some searched for cover to save their lives for the 
attack they kne,v ,vould follo,v. A few ,vent to the 
"Tunnel," only to be buried or taken prisoner in the 
defenceless trap. A very fe,v survived to tell ,vhat 
happened on that terrible morning. * 
Space will not permit of a detailed account of what 
happened to those who survived or perished, nor can the 
lnany acts of individual heroism and self-sacrifice be 
narrated in this short historical outline. Of the tactics 
and changing dispositions of the various units of the 
Division in its defence of this sacred ground, much has 
been written. For the 4th C. 1\1. R. it was a day of 
obliter ation. Only three officers out of twenty-hvo came 
*Lieutenant J. Harvey Douglas, who was injured by a flying missile when 
the mine went up and later badly wounded, subsequently falling into the hands 
of,the enemy, has vividly described his own experiences in his interesting 
book "Captured."

back from the trenches. Seventy-three men out of 680 
answered to their nalnes on June 4th. Generall\lercer's 
body "yas afterwards found in Armagh 'V ood and buried 
at Poperinghe. Brig.-General Victor "'ïlliams, who was 
very seriously wounded, and Lieut.-Colonel U ssher were 
trapped in the "Tunnel" and fell into the enemy's hands. 
The 1st C. 1\1. R. on the left had an equally bad time 
and their casualties were almost as heavy. The 5th 
C. 1\1. R. ,vhich so nobly supported the Brigade in 1\Iaple 
Copse, was also cut up. Both of these Battalions lost 
their commanding officers. Lieut.-Colonel A. E. Shaw 
of the 1st C. 1\1. R., and Lieut.-Colonel G. H. Baker of 
the 5th C. 1\1. R. fell in action. 
The Germans penetrated the front line and some of 
the support trenches of the Brigade, but considering 
their preparatory bombardment and weight of numbers, 
their advance was small when one renlembers that they 
had seven hours of daylight in ,vhich to fight. 
Major-General L. J. Lipsett, C.l\I.G., after succeeding 
General Mercer in command of the Third Division, 
wrote to the 8th Brigade in very complilnentary 
,vords: "Though on the 2nd June the Division was 
unfortunate enough to lose some of its Front Line 
Trenches I think the Battalions which held them and 
checked the German advance immediately behind 
fought in a ,yay that Canada has ever
y" reason to 
be proud. The Army Commander in his address 
testified to this, and I think it well that the facts 
of the case should be thoroughly realized. The 
1st and 4th C. 1\1. R. Battalions had the brunt of the 
bombardment and an analysis of their losses speaks for 
itself. " 
During the following day, survivors of the battalion 
acted as guides and carrying parties to the front line. 
They ,vent back on June 4th to Divisional Reserve at 
"B" Camp, which they had left but a few days. This 
handful of ,veary, grimy, unshaven lnen ""as all that 
remained of a healthy, vivacious force ,vhich had departed 
but a short time before for ,vhat ,vas expected would 
be a normal tour in the line. Seven lorry loads trans-

ported all that ,vas left of that picked body of men, who 
left Valcartier a year before full of hope and splendid 
virility, fretting under the restraint which kept them back, 
fearing they would be too late. 
An interesting sequel to this terrible battle was the 
number of men of the Battalion ,vho were wounded and 
taken prisoners and subsequently escaped from German 
prison camps. Nineteen are kno\vn to have gained their 
liberty; many of them had not recovered fully from 
wounds and physical disabilities when they made attempts 
to obtain their freedom. Several tried more than three 
times to get a way and although severely punished when 
recaptured they 'were not discouraged or their determin- 
ation subdued by the brutal chastisement meted out to 
them. They went through the most thrilling experiences, 
suffering great physical hardships, travelling by night 
through unknown and closely guarded country, until they 
reached Holland. By a curious coincidence six men of 
the Battalion who fell into the hands of the enemy 
escaped within a month of one another and met in 
London in the autumn of 1917.. 
Hardly had the battalion settled in its new billets at 
the little village of Steenvoorde when the mysterious 
army-machine began to move. The empty ranks were 
at once refilled. Reinforcements commenced to arrive 
before the dead \vere buried. Lieut.-Colonel H. D. Lock- 
hart Gordon, \vho had been attached to the Third Can- 
adian Division, returned on the 7th and was appointed 
Commanding Officer. He found his battalion, \vith 
which he had shared all the trials and tribulations of 
training and \vhich he had kno'wn so \vell, to be but the 
size of a platoon. Under his command a new organiz- 
ation was born. Captain \V. R. Patterson, who had 
been attached to the 8th Brigade Headquarters, \vas 
recalled to beconle Second-in-Comnland. By the 9th, 


· Corporal F. McMullen and Private J. Evans of the 4th C. M. R., in 
their book "Out of the Jaws of Hunland," have written an interesting account of 
their life in Gennany and of their several attempts and subsequent escape. They 
have described also their experiences in the battle on June 2nd, 1916. The other 
four were, Private J. Hocking, Private F. W. Boyd, Private R. Howitt, Private 
'V. L. ,Masters.

fixe hundred and sixty-three reinforcements had arrived. 
They ,vere soon folIo-wed by smaller drafts, 'which brought 
the battalion up to strength. A week later ten officers 
reported and in a few days t,velve more arrived, wondering 
where they ,vere and where they should go. Several Inen 
from the ranks ,vere granted comlnissions, which helped 
to swell the already full quota of officers. 
The ne,v menlbers of the Battalion soon found them- 
selves doing infantry drill. Sergeants from the Grenadier 
and Cold stream Guards were posted to the Regiment as 
instructors. These splendid soldiers were adn1Ïred but 
not ,velconle. l\Iany of the freshly joined officers and 
men had been doing such drill in England for months 
and had expected that once in France they ,vould nlerely 
practise ,,,hat they had learned. The disappointment was 
only tenlporary. Soon the Battalion ,vas rounded again 
into a fighting machine and after being thoroughly in- 
spected by the ,ArnlY Conlmander, General Sir Herbert 
Plumer, G.C.l\I.G., by the Corps and Divisional Conl- 
mandel's and also by Brigadier-General J. H. Elmsley, 
D.S.a., 'who had succeeded Brigadier-General 'Villianls, 
the Battalion went in parties by bus to Ypres, ,vhere it lived 
in the Cavalry Barracks, ,vent into the front line for a few 
days instructional work, and supplied large working-parties 
for the 7th Brigade. For many men of the new Battalion 
those days "Till be remelnbered as their first experience 
under fire. The ,vorking parties would leave at dusk> 
laboriously tramp over the uneven duck-boards up the 
long communication trenches in unknown directions, do 
their task, and be back be'fore daylight. 
The Battalion had been sending parties in turn to 
Ypres and to ,york in the line but after another round of 
inspection the ,vhole Battalion moved by route march on 
July 13th to Camp St. Lawrence and the following day 
went to Ypres Asylum and thence to the Cavalry Barracks 
and other billets in Y pres. These consisted of reinforced 
cellars and improved shelters in the mediæval ramparts 
which encircled the city. Fe,v buildings were standing, 
and none had been léft untouched; their pointed gable- 
ends still supported by the open fire-places and chimneys

marked the skeletons of fOrIner hOlnes and shops of this.

For several nights large working parties of 500 men or 
more went to the trenches. One of these parties ,vith 
Lieut. R. Innes-Taylor in charge was digging a fresh sap 
in "Ko-l\Ian's-Land" under the direction of a C.E. 
officer when a flare dropped with parabolic grace behind, 
outlining the men sufficiently Ifor the Germans to dis- 
tinguish the party against the inky blackness. Bombs 
and rifle grenades heralded their discovery and before 
they could get to cover one man was killed and two 
,vounded. 
On July 23rd the new Battalion for the first time took 
over part of the front line, relieving the 5th C. 1\1. R. in 
Sanctuary ',,"ood on the old battle line of June 2nd. The 
tenancy of the GenTIans had been short. They had 
moved their guns forward preparatory to exploiting their 
temporary success but ,vere driven out by the counter- 
attacks of the First Division and after two weeks of 
the most bitter fighting in mud and rain the Canadians 
'vere again in possession of their old 'front line. 
The Irish Guards ,,"'ho entered this sector on June 18th, 
1916, occupied the recaptured trenches froln the l\Ienin 
Road south into the north end of Sanctuary '\Vood. ::\Ir. 
Rudyard Kipling describes, * "their right line for nearly 
half a mile, was absolutely unrecognizable save in a few 
isola ted spots. The shredded ground was full of buried 
iron and timber which made digging difficult, and, in 
spite of a lot of cleaning up by predecessors, dead Can- 
adians lay in every corner. It ran through what had 
beena wood and was now a dreary collection of charred and 
splintered stakes, 'to the top of which, blown there by 
shells, hung tatters of khaki uniform and equipment.' 
There was no trace of any communication trenches." 
To the 4th C. 11. R. this shattered ,vood was indeed a 
sanctuary. 
In the early hours of the 24th the enemy threw several 
rifle grenades into one of the saps, killing Lieut. F. P. H. 
Layton and one nlan and wounding severely Lieut. C. K.

24 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 
Hoag, D.C.l\I. The enemy ,vas very active during the 
'whole of this time. His artillery was not idle and his 
snipers were most alert. One of them on the 26th killed 
Lieut. A. H. Bostock who had been with the Battalion 
only a month. The day before a German sniper had been 
accounted for while pulling rations into a tree to 'which he 
'was tied and from which he hung until cut down in the 
night. 
The Battalion ,vas relieved on the 27th and arrived 
back at Steenvoorde on the 31st. The first week of 
August was spent in drilling and route-marches. In their 
spare time the men ,yith characteristic cleanliness ,vashed 
their clothes and took the opportunity to attack the ever 
present vermin ,vhich so often got the upper hand in the 
trenches. By the 8th the Battalion had finished its share 
of rest billets and moved again for the trenches. This 
time it 'went to a more southerly sector of the salient. 
After relieving the 14th Battalion at "Swan Château" it 
provided working parties for a week and then moved into 
the front line. The Battalion frontage ran six hundred 
yards north -east from the Y pres-Comines canal a part 
known as "The Bluff." This was an exceptionally inter- 
esting tour, partly because of the enemy's artillery but 
chiefly because of the industry of the men in wiring 
craters, building dug-outs and digging trenches. The 
warm mid-summer sun cheered the men in their task of 
burrowing. Those days 'would have been pleasant days 
if the enemy's guns had been silent but their activity 
caused daily losses. They continued to take their toll 
and on the 19th the Battalion lost four men killed and 
two ,vounded. 
There had been indications that the enemy was tunnel- 
ling under the front line and listening posts were made to 
try and detect the ominous sounds of distant tappings 
which meant that men \vere 'picking their way gradually 
under "No-l\lan's-Land." So long as the gentle noise 
continued the men were happy and they found great 
interest in the daily reports that came from the posts. 
All doubts as to the enemy's intentions were removed 
one day when a large area caved in behind the front line,

revealing the location of a tunnel and checking his 
mining operations. There were several very large mine- 
craters in this sector; the Battalion held the lip of an 
enormous irregular crater which measured over five hun- 
dred feet across at its widest part and was over one hun- 
dred feet deep. 
On the night of the 22nd the Battalion was relieved. 
They left the bone-dry trenches which could change so 
rapidly ,vith the ,veather and which offered such a con- 
trast in the 'winter. By comparison July and August 
,vere not unpleasant, the soil ,vas ,vorkable, the dugouts 
,vere dry and when the day's "fatigue" 'vas over, or the 
period of vigilance completed, such men as were not 
detailed for dutv would sit in the trenches and follow the 
course of an ae
oplane soaring in the sky by the fleecy- 
white bursts of smoke, which gleamed against the deep-blue 
hea vens. In these long evenings the birdmen and the 
skylarks in their lonely altitude were the only living 
things above the ground. Such dry "'"arm days passed 
more quickly than the cold wet ones of ,,'"inter and spring. 
Nevertheless the men were delighted to be relieved. 
They cheerfully glued themselves to the sides of the 
trenches to allow the incoming heavily-laden troops more 
freedom to pass. 
This tour was the last the Battalion had in the Salient 
for many months. It returned in 1918 to Passchendaele 
but not to the old Salient it kne,v so well. It was with 
little regret that the Battalion left thispestilential:crescent. 
The enemy threw a few shells into the departing troops, 
a little souvenir, an unnecessary reminder of this horrible 
charnel-house.

CHAPTER IV 


THE SOMME 


I F the Germans, by their activity around Ypres, intend- 
ed to check the preparations of the British Army for 
the impending offensive on the Somme, they were un- 
successful. The general plan of the Allies 'vas to at- 
tack simultaneously on all fronts and thus pin do,vn 
the enemy, preventing him from moving his troops from one 
theatre to another. It also ,vas intended to relieve the 
pressure at Verdun and gradually 'wear do,vn the resistance 
of the Central Powers. 'Vhile the struggle ,vas called the 
Battles of the Somme, it ,vas for the British the battle of 
the .A.ncre. The river Somme subsequently divided the 
British and French; the advance by both armies ran par- 
allel to the river. The first objectives of the left flank 
of the British 'vere along the eastern bank of the river 
Ancre which proved almost impregnable. 
Enormous preparations had been made. A Reserve ...L\..rmy 
under General Gough had been formed especially for 
this offensive. Every Division in the Army was to take in 
turn its share in the assaults. As a result of the great 
activity of the Ministry of l\lunitions, guns and shells 
had been pouring into the country for months. A pre- 
paratory bombardment of unheard of proportions was 
planned. Instead of the usual intensive shelling on a 
small front for a few hours this final word in modern 
warfare was to be a concentration on a large front for 
a fortnight. In the first bombardment the individual 
booming of gun or howitzer was lost in the endless roar 
of innumerable pieces of all calibre. It was like a con- 
tinuous peal of thunder. At night thousands of over- 
lapping flashes illuminated the sky for miles. The many 
coloured rockets ,
vhich flared into this blazing firmament 
lingered at the peak of their flight to signal a garrison's

distress or mark the positions of advancing troops. 
The Germans, in anticipation of an attack in force, had 
n1ade their positions renlarkably strong. Every ,vood 
and village was conyerted into a strong-point, garrisoned 
and rationed with food and amlnunition to ,vithstand 
the most formidable assault. . The nature of the ground 
aided enonnously in their defence along the Ancre and 
they were fortunate also ,vhen rain came and mired our 
arI
ies when they,vere on the point of breaking through. 
After the great preparator:y bombardment the offensiye 
was launched on July 1st in conjunction with the French. 
The attack developed in stages, the first resulted in the 
capture of the Gennan first line of defences in the southern 
sector which included the villages of Fricourt, :\lametz, 
l\Iontauban and Contahnaison but in the northern sector 
,ve had practically no success. There ,vas a slight lull 
for further preparations until July 14th when another 
big assault was launched increasing the indentation in the 
southern sector and extending our line to Delville \Yood. 
On July 18th a third stage lnarked the capture of Guille- 
mont, Ginchy, Delville \Yood and Pozières. The salient 
,vas pushed yet farther but the northern sector was hardly 
penetrated. The enemy still held Thiepval which 
seemed invulnerable. It had a strategic position on 
high ground overlooking the low yalley of the ...-\ncre, 
and ,vas not reduced until October. 1\ evertheless, its 
flank was being turned slowly but surely and when the 
next big push came it was almost surrounded. 
The Canadian Corps entered this colossal struggle on 
September 4th relieying the .A,ustralians, who, in brilliant 
fashion t,vo w'eeks preyiously, had taken Pozières, on 
the ,A..lbert-Bapaume Road. 'Yhile there w"as contin- 
uous fighting to straighten the line and consolidate it, 
these were minor actions in prepar"a tion for th
 next 
grea t stage w hích commenced in the middle of Sep- 
teluber. This ,vas another move along the whole front 
to threaten further the German flanks and to turn the 
strong positions at Thiepval. The Canadian Divisions 
,vent to the Somme in turn, keeping up a vigorous 
offensive and joining on September 15th in the general

advance on the next objectives. They took Courcelette, 
,vh:Ie the Guards took Flers and other Divisions captured 
High 'Vood and l\Iartinpuich. For the first time the 
mysterious "Tanks" of the Machine Gun Corps, Heavy 
Section, went into action. These successes were followed 
ten days later by another advance when the French took 
COlubles, ,vhile l\Iorval, Gueudecourt and Lesboeufs fell to 
the British. 
This great battle had been raging bvo months when the 
Battalion went into rest billets near Steenvoorde and 
commenced training for the Somme. Although the 
Battalion had been reorganized only three months and 
was practically a new unit it only had a week of prepar- 
ation for the new offensive. Imaginary trenches were 
taped out on the ground and attacked in the new ",vave" 
formation introduced and already used by the French. 
They would assault these fictitious defences behind an 
illusionary "creeping" barrage and go through all the 
motions of the latest form of attack. They did route- 
marches and had musketry and bayonet practice. It 
was a busy week in a quiet, verdant country side. 
On the 7th September the Battalion started on its 
journey to the Somme. It moved partly by motor-bus 
and partly on foot to Cassel ,vhere it entrained at 6 o'clock 
that night; a pleasant change to be again on a train 
although t.be great discomfort of a night's journey 
did not justify any great enthusiasm. The men knew 
approximately their destination but the mystery as to 
their exact movements added spice to the journey. That 
night they travelled fast and far, for a troop-train; 
da wn found them many miles south, in Pi cardy . They 
detrained at 5.30 in the morning at Candas and marched 
west through a beautiful, cultivated country to Franque- 
ville. They rested a day and a half in this little hamlet 
which nestled beside a well kept wood far a way from the 
ruined zone and were billeted in the farm buildings \vhich 
were grouped along the road to Domart. They enjoyed 
seeing again the children in their black smocks, the 
zinc-covered bar in the estaminet, the picturesque Town 
Crier, and the Picardy farms with their manured quad-

rangles and community centres so t:ypical of billets in 
the back area. On the 10th, which was an ideal summer 
morning, they trekked east again across charming, 
un travelled roads, past green ,yoods and fenceless fields 
of stubble and tall lucerne still damp with dew. They 
were bound for Vert-Galand Farm on the Doullens- 
Amiens road. Half-,vay there they received orders to 
billet at l\Iontrelet. The men found themselves in the 
next village to Candas and ,vondered if they had been 
lost and travelling in circles. They did not realize, 
perhaps, that they were only one of hundreds of battalions 
which ,vere kept moving all through this area on the 
way to the Somme. On the morning of the 11 th motor 
buses lined the village road and conveyed the Battalion 
thirty miles to ...-\lbert. The dusty convoy rolled over 
the flint and chalk roads, through little villages with 
their steepled churches, public ponds and hUlnble school 
houses, past farms and hutments crowded ,vith troops 
and out again along the high road with its rows of tall, 
trimmed poplars. By noon they were entering Albert 
through the congested hive behind the battle fields. The 
Battalion de-bused outside Albert and moved by platoons 
to the brick-fields at the north of the town. 
Coming from the Salient, where nothing moved on the 
surface, to this comparatively open ,varfare ,vas at first 
incomprehensible to the men. They never dreamed of 
such a contrast. All had tried to visualize this great 
battle-ground to which they knew it ,vould probably be 
their fate to go. It was ,vhat they felt, rather than 
what they sa'v that ilnpressed them most; the freedom, 
the unguarded movements, the disregard for protection. 
They 'vere stunned by the vastness of the operations; 
tracks led everywhere across the country, processions of 
endless traffic moved in all directions, horse-lines covered 
every flat piece of land, canvas troughs ,yatered thousands 
of anilnals, hosts of tents ,vere pitched on the open hill 
sides. Guns were everywhere, some crudely camouflaged, 
others without any cover; large naval guns mounted on 
railway trucks fired regularly from the valleys rocking 
the whole country-side. Ammunition dUlnps ,vhich

covered acres ,vere depleted and replenished ,vith only 
an occasional hindrance. One enormous dump near 
Fricourt "went up" for daY's but was a mere incident in 
the turmoil and noise. Innumerable troops billeted 
themselves in tents, lean-to's and old German dugouts. 
Noisy, high-spirited battalions laden with rations, am- 
munition, sand bags, and gas masks were passed by 
unshaven, tired and worn cOlnpanies silently coming out. 
The brick-fields ,vere congested ,vith bell-tents and 
transport lines. An occasional shell ,vould frighten a 
horse from the picket line and start him careering through 
the tented area followed by an irate groom and cursed 
by the inmates of the tents. l\Iost of the men of the 
Battalion did not have a chance to get initiated into this 
new life beca use of the sudden orders ,vhich reached 
them on their arrival. They ,vere told that they had to 
go into the line that night. This came as a surprise to the 
officers who had not had an opportunity to orient them- 
selves or make any kind of reconnaissance. By 6.30 p.m. 
the Battalion less a reserve' of Officers, N.C.O.'s and 
details ,vas on the move along the main Albert- 
Bapaume road through la Boisselle to Pozières to relieve 
the 5th Battalion. The men saw for the first time 
on either side of this congested road the devastation 
of the Somme battlefields. Not a tree ,vas standing, la 
Boisselle ,vas a heap of rubble and the remains of its 
buildings had been used to fill the shell holes in the road. 
Shell cases were strewn along the roadside or Inarked old 
battery positions. Tangled ,vire and mutilated trenches 
covered the barren 'waste as far as one could see. From 
the high ground beyond Albert the gilded Virgin could 
be seen hanging at a perilous angle oyer the ruined Cam- 
panile of the Eglise Notre-Dame de Brebières. She 
seemed to be clinging to her tower that the folk -prophecy 
of victory might be fulfilled. Colulnns of dust could be 
seen rising from the to,vn when a shell found its mark in 
the clay-plaster and brick of the ruins. 
It was dark ,vhen the Battalion left Pozières. The 
relief was difficult and unpleasant, the guides getting 
lost in the maze of trenches in the darkness. During

the relief the Germans bombarded .with gas-shells causing 
a number of casualties. Lieutenant J. U. Garrow was 
gassed and subsequently died. Captain A. S. Hamil- 
ton * finding his men overcome in a gas-saturated trench 
jumped into it, with utter disregard for his o\vn life, and 
dragged them to safety. Alt
ough so badly gassed that 
his health was permanently injured, he refused to leave 
the line and it was not kno\vn until later that he carried 
on throughout this and a subsequent action in great 
personal distress. For this devotion to duty he was 
recommended for the 1\Iilitary Cross. 
Two days \vere spent in trenches \vhich ran east from 
)Iouquet Farm, 2,000 yards to the north of Pozières. 
Here "T" saps were constructed as jumping-off points 
for the 5th C. 1\1. R. which relieved the 4th on the night 
of the 13th-14th attacking from these positions on the 
15th. 
The general attack .which \vas launched all along the 
line on September 15th was preceded by a heavy bom- 
bardment for several days. The tanks, then new mys- 
terious machines of \var, were used for the first time. 
Rumours of their existence had filtered through the army 
but the knowledge of their whereabouts and appearance 
\vas obscure. These lumbering caterpillars made their 
début before the masses of troops on this eventful morning. 
The previous night some of the Battalion saw them 
crawling into position. They \vere spinning out \vhite 
direction tapes under the command of an officer who 
\valked ahead semaphoring with his arms to the opera tor 
inside. At that time there were t\VO kinds of Tanks, 
the female with her trailer being more a,vkward than 
the male. Five Divisions of Cavalry were concentrated 
behind the lines to seize any opportunity of a break- 
through. Great things were expected. It ,vas a red- 
letter day in the Somme offensive. 
The 1st and 5th C. 1\1. R. battalions of the 8th Brigade 
took part in the attack in the early morning and success- 
fully reached their objectives. The 1st C. 1\1. R. was

on the extreme left of the Canadian Corps in front of 
Mouquet Farm. The 2nd Division had pushed well up 
to Courcelette while on its right the Fourth Army attack 
had also gone well. By 8 a.m. it was apparent that the 
enemy had been thoroughly shaken and the Corps Com- 
mander decided to push home his advantage, ordering 
up the 7th Brigade and also the 4th C. 1\1. R. of the 8th 
Brigade. It was a ,varm, dry autumn day. The enemy's 
artillery ,vas quiet but his machine-gunners and snipers 
were still fighting. They were in fairly good trenches behind 
wire, their targets silhouetted against the afternoon sun. 
The Battalion, ,vhich ,vas in the chalk-pits, having 
come out of the line the night before, suddenly received 
orders that it was to take part in the attack which was 
planned to start at 5.00 p.m. There was neither time 
to issue orders nor, in fact, to consider the plan of attack, 
if the jlunping off point ,vas to be reached in time for 
"zero hour." Colonel Gordon sent the Battalion forward 
whilst he galloped to Headquarters to discuss the plan 
of action ,vith the Brigadier and l\Iajor 1\foore Cosgrave, 
the artilJery officer. It 'vas decided that as the 4th 
C. M. R. ,vas to be the pivot it should start half an hour 
after the main attack and a special barrage was immedi- 
ately worked out to protect them. Orders \vere then 
written and sent after the Battalion. This change in 
plan subsequently proved to be the salvation of "B" 
Company as other,vise they ,vould have reached their 
objective before the troops on their right and would have 
walked into the barrage which was laid down as soon as 
the attack started and which caught "C" Company. 
The Battalion was ordered to assemble in a trench two 
hundred yards in advance of the line held on the 11th 
and to attack at 5.30 p.m. in a northerly direction advanc- 
ing in two .waves on a three hundred yard frontage. 
The first ,vave ,vas to capture a trench t\VO hundred and 
seventy-five yards in front of the jumping-off point and 
the second wave to go through the first and occupy a 
part of Fabeck Graben trench, one hundred yards in 
advance of the first objective, keeping in touch ,vith the 
42nd Battalion on the right. 



THE SOl\IME 


l\Iajor ,Yo Coleman, l\I.C., commanding" B" Company 
was detailed by Colonel Gordon to attack on the left and 
Captain Hamilton with "C" Company, on the right. 
l\lajor Patterson was placed in charge of the operations 
"yith a forward headquarters in the assembly trench. 
"B" COlnpany arrived at its "jumping off" position 
ten minutes in advance of "zero hour." "C" Company 
was not so fortunate, the communication trench at 
Tom's Cut was blown-in and when Captain Hamilton 
attempted to take his men across the open they came 
under a ,vithering machine-gun fire which wiped out the 
most of two platoons. Captain Hamilton re-organized 
his COlnpany, reported back to Battalion Headquarters 
that a further advance ,vould be suicidal and receiyed 
permission to dribble his men across country by another 
route to the assembly trench. 
Iajor Patterson not 
knowing what had happened to "C" Company, ordered 
"B" Company to attack alone. l\Iajor Coleman rose 
to the unequal task, swinging his right flank forward until 
the men were so close to the barrage that many became 
casualties from our own fire. Immediately the barrage 
lifted the men charged the enemy and although the ,yire 
had not been completely cut and the Germans from the 
direction of l\louquet Farm kept up an enfilade fire, they 
attacked ,yith such spirit that they ,vere quickly in 
possession of the first objective. The second 'va ve 
followed in perfect order passing over the first line and 
pushing forward in the face of heavy shelling to the 
objective, the Fabeck Graben. They found this trench 
full of Germans who at first put up a stubborn resistance 
which soon wilted under the determined assault of l\Iajor 
Coleman's lnen. 
As soon as a footing had been gained in the enemy's 
trench the Battalion Bombers worked their way down 
either flank. They soon came in contact ,vith the 42nd 
Battalion on their right and ,vere ahle to establish t,vo 
blocks in the system on the left. The Germans could 
not withstand the relentless pressure of the Bombers under 
Lieut. H. E. l\Ioore. Some of them fled down the trench 
toward

scuttled across the open to Zollern Redoubt, five hundred 
yards to the north. 
Before dark "B" Company was in command of the 
situation. It was a remarkable achievement for one 
company and much of the credit 'vas due to the splendid 
example of leadership set by l\Iajor Coleman and Lieut- 
enant l\Ioore. The fOTce was not strong enough to hold 
its gains if the enemy counter-attacked but help 'was on 
the way; Lieutenant l\Ioore, \vho was wounded after lead- 
ing his Bombers so bravely, successfully reported the 
situation at 11 p.m. to Colonel Gordon who had already 
sent "c" Company to help consolidate the newly-won 
position. Also, a composite company under Captain 
Gale, after considerable difficulty made its way through 
the dark and unfamiliar ground laden \vith water, sand- 
bags, bombs and ammunition to assist in consolidating 
and help "B" Company in case of a counter attack. 
At daylight, contact aeroplanes passed over and the 
ne\v positions .,vere signalled to them. During the 
morning information was received at Headquarters that 
further operations were contemplated but 'when orders 
arrived later in the day it was found that the Battalion 
Bombers under Lieutenant l\loore had already done all 
that was expected. For his tireless, unflinching energy 
and splendid example of bravery, Lieutenant l\Ioore \vas 
recommended for the l\Iilitary Cross, but unfortunately 
was killed before he received it. 
Rumours of further attacks had filtered through the 
trenches, but the Battalion did not move. It ,vas subse- 
quently learned that the Higher Command had decided 
to strike again while the Prussians were disorganized. 
At 5 p.m. on the 16th a surprise attack by the 9th and 
7th Brigades \vas opened in an effort to take the Zollern 
Redoubt and extend the advantage to Zollern Trench on 
the right. This famous redoubt was in front of the 4th 
C. 1\1. R. and as the men stood in their trenches under a 
gentle rain they sa,v the troops of the 7th Brigade follo\v- 
ing the barrage over the gentle slope toward Zollern 
Graben. It was a remarkable privilege to witness 
another regiment going for\vard in perfect formation to

attack. They advanced at a steady walk in extended 
order "Tith bayonets fixed and rifles at the trail, following 
under the bursts of high-explosives into the smoke and 
din of the bombardment. It was a rare, magnificent 
and inspiring sight. .A, flushed, corpulent Sergeant of 
the attacking troops, ,vho had lost direction, bounded 
into the trench occupied by the 4th C. 1\1. R. thinking 
he had reached his objective. After mopping his bro\v, 
adjusting his "tin" hat and cursing his luck, he rejoined 
his comrades. 
That evening the Battalion 'vas relieved by the 
Lancashire Fusiliers. The Battalion had reason to be 
proud of its part in this historic battle for Courcelette. 
It was due to their coolness and steadiness that they 
were able to march for t,vo hours through heavy fire to 
their assembly point and be in a position in less than four 
hours after receiving orders. They accomplished in 
soldierly fashion their difficult task as pivot troops for 
the larger flanking movement. Even after their objec- 
tive had been reached they carried on the ,vork of con- 
solidating under heavy rifle and machine gun fire and 
were not checked bv the trench-mortar bombardment 
which assailed them" from 1\Iouquet Farm. They com- 
pleted a long communication trench ",ith the help of a 
pioneer battalion and when relief came Colonel Gordon 
was able to hand over a finished svstem of defensible 
trenches. Their booty ,vas big; fifty men, including 
three officers, were taken prisoner and t,vo machine guns 
were captured. 
The severity of the struggle ,vas evident from the casual- 
ties; two officers and thirty-t\vO men killed and four 
officers and fifty-two wounded. 
The Battalion returned to Albert on the 17th, rested 
until the morning of the 19th and then marched back to 
'" arJoy ,,,here it was billeted for a day. The men were 
in high spirits. Their first adventure on the SomIne had 
been a great success; they had Inany mental and 
material souvenirs. On the following day they cleaned 
and cleared billets, marching back to,vard the front to 
Bouzincourt. They had a week in this little village of

many and varied smells and were able to visit again that 
pleasant oasis, the Expeditionary Force Canteen. 
l\Iajor-General Lipsett, C.l\I.G., commanding the Third 
Division, addressed the Regiment on September 23rd, 
after the successful attack on September 15th. His 
remarks were taken down in the field: 


What I wish to say is how pleased I am with the work the Brigade 
-and especially this Battalion-did during the big attack that was 
pulled off last week. Both the Corps Commander and Army Com- 
mander have expressed their great appreciation, and are entirely 
satisfied with what you did. The attack that is going on down here 
is extended over a large frontage, so that the enemy cannot concentrate 
his artillery on any particular point as would be the case if the ad- 
vance was only on a small frontage. It was on September 15th, that 
the Brigade got orders to attack ann in the morning the 5th C.:M.R. 
were ordered to attack and successfully accomplished their task. 
Later, the Brigade got orders from Divisional headquarters that we 
had to make an attack on a large frontage, taking the German 
trenches before they had time to settle down after their morning set- 
back. The 9th Brigade had to be moved up, they taking up a position 
on the right, the 8th Brigade, which was represented by the 4th 
C.M.R. only, were given the left position. We know now how well 
they did their work, and how one company practically did the whole 
Brigade work. At first we had reports that the HC" Company could 
not get into position, and had been nearly cut to pieces by machine 
gun fire. Had we known then what the 4th C.M.R. could do we would 
not have been so dubious about their success, as shortly afterwards 
word came that the Company on the left had gone on and had taken 
and cleared aU the trenches allotted to the Brigade. Not only did 
you take your objective, but successfully bombarded a considerable 
way down the enemy's trench to the left and erected some very good 
blocks. The remainder of "C" Company arrived later, and the con- 
solidating work done was wonderful. Later, Colonel Gordon sent up 
another Company which took over another part of the old German 
Front Line and did some very good work consolidating under heavy 
fire. The work of Major Patterson, Major Coleman, Sergeant Layton 
and a dozen others, I know deserve special recommendations, and 
I only regret that an cannot get decorations; but a soldier should 
always remember that he should find his reward for his work in the 
fact that he is held in high esteem by his comrades. I am glad that 
the 4th C.M.R. have had this opportunity of wiping off an old SCore-- 
that of the pounding they got on the 2nd of June. This Brigade 
now need have no fear of ever having to take second place to any 
Brigade in the whole of the Canadian Contingent.

On the 27th a hurried move was ordered and the 
Regiment marched a\vay at 2.00 p.m. do\vn the same 
road to Albert that it had travelled by bus a month 
before. The men passed through the outskirts of the 
town and the brickfields and up the Bapaume Road to 
Tara HilI behind Pozières, where they had tea and pushed

on through the congested traffic to relieve the 8th and 
lOth Battalions and support the 1st and 2nd C. 1\1. R., 
who occupied the front line. Three days were spent in 
carrying up supplies, ammunition, petrol tins of water 
and in clearing the battlefields of their dead and debris. 
On the last day of the month they commenced to take 
over at 7.00 p.m. from the 2nd C. 1\1. R. in the front line 
and by 2.00 a.m. the relief was completed. Their tem- 
porary abode in the support trenches was wet, cold and 
costly; ten men \vere killed and thirty-four wounded. 
Practically all óf these numerous casualties resulted from 
the heavy shelling. 
In the early morning of the first day of October, 
the Battalion was about a thousand yards in front 
of the ground they had captured in the middle of 
September. Since that time the troops had been inces- 
santly hammering the German defences until ZoIIern 
Trench and Hessian Trench had fallen; the next line 
of defence \vas Regina Trench. 
The Somme offensive had developed into one of 
attrition. One attack was followed closely by another 
until bit bv bit the razed defences were nibbled from the 
enemy. The ridge commanding Thiepval, Grandcourt 
and 1\Iiraumont had been taken. Regina Trench was 
on the reverse slope and formed a defensive flank, which 
was gradually being thrust back until Thiepval was 
almost surrounded. The Germans fully realizing the 
danger of losing Regina Trench made one of the most 
outstanding and determined attempts to retain it. It 
was difficult for our guns to reach it as it was just over 
the crest of the hill. The enemy had the advantage of a 
deep ravine and several sunken roads which led into 
Regina Trench from the rear and which enabled him 
to rush up supplies and provisions to the garrison. 
It was densely manned with picked troops. A great 
quantity of concertina barbed-\vire had been thrown out 
to supplement the existing uninviting entanglements. 
It was a strong position prepared to resist a strong attack. 
The 5th and 8th Brigades were ordered to storm the 
bulwarks of this crowning position, and the 4th C.

with their usual luck 'were on the left flank and had to 
attack on a six hundred yard frontage with two cOlnpanies 
plus one platoon in two waves fifty yards apart. Colonel 
Gordon ordered "D" Company under Captain L. F. 
Bishop to attack on the right and "A" Company com- 
manded by Captain B. R. Gale to attack on the left. 
One pia toon of " C" had a small frontage and was detailed 
to place a block in Regina Trench on the extreme left of 
the Battalion's objective. l\Iajor Patterson established a 
forward headquarters in Gun Pit Trench behind Hessian 
Trench; machine gunners and bombers were detailed to 
follow on the flanks of the second \va ve. " D" Company 
assembled in Gun Pit Trench, "A" Compan
y" collected 
in a trench running north from Hessian Trench and the 
platoon of "C" Company had to find the best available 
place still nearer Regina Trench. The remainder of 
" C" Company were to garrison Hessian Trench and the 
communication trench running from it and thereby 
form a defensive flank. 
Before the attack took place scouts had reported that 
the wire 'was very thick and that it appeared untouched 
by the artillery. Only one small gap existed on the left 
of "D" Company's frontage. This information was 
reported to the Brigade at 7.05 a.m. and explained to 
the 6th Artillery Brigade at 7.30 p.m. It 'was decided 
to pound the wire until 10.30 a.m. and then cease fire 
for an hour to allow the scouts to examine it again. 
'Yord was received at 9.55 a.m. that it was imperative 
for the attack to take place even though all the wire was 
not cut. Due to the position of Regina Trench the 
Artillery had great difficulty in finding the \yire. At 
11.30 a.m. when the hammering was finished Captain A. 
A. l\IacKenzie went out ,vith a few scouts in broad day- 
light and found the wire still a formidable obstacle. " A" 
Company was ordered to crawl out and creep around the 
first band of entanglements preparatory to the attack 
and thus avoid the apparent necessity of finding a \vay 
through it. 
The men 'waited in the drizzling rain for the barrage 
to lift. They knew exactly ".hat they were expected to 



THE SOl\1:\1E 


do and looked forward to the same success that had 
accompanied their enterprise of hvo weeks before. They 
itched for the word to go. The unbearable suspense 
made the minutes seem hours. The tension ,vas not 
relieved until the two-minute barrage lifted and the 
attack 'was launched. " A" Company which had got 
into position as intended went forward into a blizzard of 
machine gun bullets ,vhich checked them in their first 
stride. The barrage ,vhich ,vas supposed to have been 
laid down a hundred yards in front of the enemy's 
trench had gone too far and the Germans without 
hindrance manned their parapets and ,viped out practic- 
ally the entire Company as it struggled to get through. 
Captain l\lacKenzie and his men were forced to take 
refuge in shell holes. The right platoon of the first 
· 'wave of "D" Company also met the heavy 'wire and 
never got through it. However, one officer and the 
remainder of the Company, found, as anticipated, the 
gap in the entanglements which lay on the left of its 
front and between that of "A" Company. and fought 
their way into Regina Trench and held it until the last 
man of them was killed. The platoon of "C" Company 
made an equally disastrous attempt. As soon as the 
men left the communication trench they ,vere brought 
to their knees. Captain Gale gathered the fragments 
of "A" Company and made another attempt to get to 
Regina Trench without success.. Part of the second wave 
of his Company went to the assistance of " C" Company's 
platoon and tried to bomb their ,yay down the communi- 
cation trench into Regina Trench. Captain lVlacKenzie 
and a few men supported them by sniping from shell 
holes. By 5.00 p.m. the attack had developed into a 
bombing mêlée. l\Iore grenades were ordered up and 
the fusillade continued until the ranks ,vere so diminished 
and the men so ,vorn that they were ordered to retire 
into the" block" in the communication trench. It ,vas 
here that Lieutenant l\foore was killed. He fought with 
his Bombers all day, advancing and retreating do,vn the 
communication trench and at one time obtained a 
temporary footing in Regina Trench. l\Ian after man

was killed beside him but he seemed to bear a charmed 
life. As the evening approached the sound of exploding 
bombs ceased and it was known that he had shared the 
fate of so many of his brave Bombers. This officer was 
recommended again for the 1\Iilitary Cross but owing to 
the regulations in force it was not possible to make a 
posthumous award. 
The Germans had been more than prepared for such 
an attack. They were heavily reinforced during the 
action and would have been even better supported if the 
over-reaching barrage had not effectively found those 
who were coming up the sunken roads. The enemy 
signalled by red and green lights to his gunners 'who 
responded accurately to the detriment of the assault. 
The Germans organized a counter-attack with a view to 
cutting off the thinned line. About 4.80 p.m. they were 
seen to leave their trenches but they were driven back 
with telling effect, Captain MacKenzie and his In en in- 
flicting enormous casualties. Finally the enemy made 
repeated attempts to dislodge the courageous defenders 
from the communication trench but never succeeded. At 
6.80 p.m. two platoons of "B" Compan
 were sent to 
reinforce the front line and the balance of the company 
carried up supplies. - 
This attack was not successful, but only in that Regina 
Trench was not completely captured and held. The 
Brigade had upheld the established reputation of the 
Canadian Corps as shock-troops. Even had the wire 
been cut and the barrage accurately placed on the enemy 
trenches it is most doubtful if two companies and one 
platoon could have carried out the ambitious programme. 
The 5th Brigade and the rest of the 8th Brigade met the 
same fate as the 4th C. 1\1. R. This was the first attempt 
to subdue Regina Trench. It proved to be no ordinary 
line of defence. A week later the 7th and 9th Brigades 
profiting by the experiences of the rest of the Division) 
also attacked this stronghold, but with similar results. 
The 49th Battalion, 'which relieved the 4th C. 1\1. R. 
on the night of 2nd /8rd October, made a gallant 
but unsuccessful attempt a few days later to get a foot- 



THE SOMl\IE 


hold in it. The wire and weather ,vere more formidable 
antagonists than the enemy. The ground, while not a 
sea of mud as it later became, was a foe in itself, and the 
entanglements, ,vhich were not sufficiently destroyed by 
artillery, remained as an inanimate adversary too strong 
for the success of any troops, no matter how indomitable. 
The Battalion went back to Albert for five days, then 
returned and did three days in support trenches, sending 
up working parties at night. One of these parties on 
the night of the lOth was met by an Engineer officer and 
escorted toward the front line to dig jumping-off trenches 
for an attack of the 4th Division. Unfortunately, on 
the way up he was badly wounded and his runner killed 
by a "crump." Lieut. A. P. l\Ienzies, .who was in 
charge of the right party, is mentioned in the Diary as 
"showing great courage and devotion to duty under 
exceptionally trying circumstances" by leading the party 
himself, without a guide, through the dark to the dan- 
gerous task. It was a typical night's work, a pattern 
of hundreds of such nocturnal horrors. At the time it 
was serious and tragic, but no,v through the haze of 
pa thos can be seen a grimly humorous side 'which was 
not evident then. The work lay in the open under a 
brilliant full-moon. It was approached by a shallow 
sunken road, running in the 'wrong direction to give 
cover to the party, which became a prey to sniping and 
enfilade fire. This road faded into a fiat, bankless 
track and as the men reached the open they were sniped 
and their chances of getting out to their ,vork unscathed 
were poor. The men had been told before they started 
that they 'would not be relieved in the line until the work 
,vas completed. If this was a genuine threat, it ,vas quite 
unnecessary. The trench was to be dug five feet deep, 
but long before the "yaning moon had disappeared their 
linear task was cOlnpleted and the trench had re
ched an 
incredible depth. The enemy's machine guns had infin- 
itely more influence on the digging than the orders of a 
Divisional Commander. 
The next tour in the line made the fifth and last effort 
of the 4th C. 1\1. R. in this Gargantuan struggle.

42 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 
The discipline displayed by the officers and men was 
exceptionaHy good, especialJy \vhen one remembers that 
the Battalion was practically ne\v after the battle of 
Sanctuary Vrood, and with only a few weeks' training 
\vas thrown into the line five times and took part in two 
major attacks. Captain R. Innes-Taylor, the Adjutant, 
gave invaluable assistance to Colonel Gordon during the 
difficult period of reorganization and preparation for the 
Somme. The Regiment entered twelve hundred strong 
and received some two hundred reinforcements. The 
casualties were greater than the average strength of a 
battalion; over one thousand men killed, wounded or 
missing was the contribution of the 4th C. 1\1. R. to that 
great phalanx of British soldiers which marched into the 
Battle of the Somme and fell. 
On October 14th, 1916, the Battalion turned its back 
for ever on that sector of the front and started on a cir- 
cuitous route to Vimy. The men marched in easy stages 
by Albert and 'Varloy to Antheux, where they halted for 
three days. Anyone who had seen this band of exhausted 
troops as they laboured from billet to billet over the flint 
and chalk roads, would have recognized them as a depleted 
unit from the Somme. A platoon commander had the 
significant opportunity of riding his Company Com- 
mander's horse at the head of his batman, t\VO stretcher- 
bearers and one other rank. The unequal platoons bore 
sad testimony to the cost of a month's sojourn on the 
Somme; and only a portion of the time on a few hundred 
yards of that long front. 
On the 20th the Battalion went about fifteen kilometres 
north to Barly and the following day resumed its trek 
for ten miles north and west to Berlencourt on the River 
Canche. It left at 10.00 o'clock in the morning and arrived 
in billets in time for tea. These hamlets were a marked 
change from the ruins and devastation of the Somme. 
Berlencourt, a peaceful, straggling little place on the 
side of a clear stream in a \vooded country, was one of 
those pastoral centres maintaining rural activities within 
earshot of the heavy guns. On the 22nd the Battalion 
completed the last leg of the journey, a fifteen mile route

march to l\Iaræuil over a slight watershed of rolling 
agricultural country, dotted ,vith little villages and old 
châteaux with ,vooded parks, and bearing, still, the 
feudal ear-marks of the Royalist régime. l\{aræuil lies 
about four miles north-west from Arras. It had a more 
evident atmosphere of active ,varfare about it. It was 
occasionally shelled but except for the railway station, 
a supply train every night and an Engineer's Dump, it 
'vas a comparatively safe place. Billets were scarce and 
only one estaminet proprietor braved the dangers of 
residence. It ,vas a Divisional Reserve area for the 
'\"'ïmy front, a quiet contrast to the Somme. The Battal- 
ion remained two days prior to entering new trenches on 
a fresh and dissin1ilar sector where the Canadian Corps 
,vithin six n10nths took part in one of the most brilliant 
exploi ts of the war.

CHAPTER V 


VIMY RIDGE 


V 1l\IY RIDGE, one of the key positions in the 
defence of the German '''''estern Front, was con- 
sidered by the enemy to be invulnerable and its 
possession imperative. It commanded a large 
area to its west and south, and protected the 
admirable billeting district around the congested mining 
country of Lens. By November, 1916, the Canadian 
Corps held that part of the line which ran north 
from the outskirts of Arras to a point east of Souchez. 
The elaborate trench system traversed a shallo,v 
valley dominated on the east by Vimy Ridge and 
by a lesser rise on the west. The westerly elevation 
shielded the troops billeted in the back areas along the 
River Scarpe. Although separated by a few score miles 
from the Somme this region seemed as if in a different 
country. It was a quiet front, in fact it had seen only 
ordinary trench warfare since 1915 when the French 
Zouaves had heavy losses attempting to maintain their 
temporary foot-hold on the Ridge. An immense chalk 
formation underlay the soil which, in many places, ,vas 
so thin as to show chalky outcrops. Fresh trenches were 
like bleached strips on the land and naturally were diffi- 
cult to conceal. The comparative solidity of the chalk, 
and the ease of working it, encouraged tunnelling, with the 
consequence that t4e whole front was pock-marked by 
mine-craters. l\Iany large dug-outs and caves were 
constructed to harbour troops, and some existing sub- 
terranean passages \vere enlarged and improved and 
played an important part in concentrating troops for the 
assault on Yimy Ridge. One of the largest tunnels, of 
mediæval or ancient origin, was over seven hundred yards 
in length and t,venty-five feet in height, and had all the 
44

IY RIDGE 


conveniences that modern engineering could provide; 
electric light, ,vater-supply, light-raihvay, dressing-sta- 
tions and telephonic comlnunications. 
On October 24th the 4th C. 
I. R. relieved a London 
Regiment of one of the ne,ve
t Imperial Divisions in front 
of Ecurie, which was ahnost on the extreme right of the 
Corps Front and adjacent to that maze of interlocking 
trenches and old craters kno,vn to the French as "The 
Labyrinth" and "rhich ranked in their early war-annals 
\vith our "Bird Cage" at )"'pres. 'Yhen the men entered 
the communication trenches at Anzin, the front \vas so 
peaceful after the Somlne, it ,vas difficult to realize that 
the enemy was close at hand. The last day of the month 
sa \v the Battalion, for the first time, in the frontline 
trenches on the Yimy Front. By the code phrase "Rum 
issued at 11.00" they reported the completion of the 
relief. The month of Novelnber passed; seven men 
\vounded were the total casualties, a fact indicative of the 
quietness of this sector. On the 29th, the night before 
leaving the line, a sentry group under Corporal Butters 
of "D" Company captured two German prisoners who 
\vere handed over to the A. P. ßI. On the 30th the 
Brigade was drawn up for a review by the Corps Com- 
mander, Lieut.-General Sir Julian Byng who presented 
honours to fifteen officers, non -commissioned officers and 
men of the Battalion, for their work at the SOlnme. 
Each time when relieved they returned to Etrun, near 

Iaræuil, where, in a large shed converted into an army 
natatorium, \vere severa) enormous wine-vats filled with 
warm water \vhich soon cleansed the Battalion. Fresh 
clothing was another luxury. 'Vhen in rest billets the 
men kept up their training in musketry, bombing and 
sniping, and kept fit by route-marching. 
They continued the Brigade routine of four days in 
the trenches and four days in billets, and December 
passed more or less as the previous month. The \veather 
became more uncertain; heavy rains did considerable 
damage to the trenches. The cOlnmunication trenches 
were conspicuousl
r French in their construction, many 
"
ere strongly revetted and still bore their Gallic names.

46 4TH CANADIAN l\10UNTED RIFLES 
,\Yherever ne\v trenches \vere required or old ones repaired 
it was not uncommon to unearth bits of blue tunics, red 
trousers or other evidence of sacrifices made in the 
previous year by French troops. The Battalion had one 
unpleasant tour during the month. It relieved the 2nd 
C. 1\1. R. in the front line on the 17th and had the mis- 
fortune to lose on the same day, Lieutenant Leonard 
Dunsford who had joined but a fe\v days before. Toward 
the end of the saIne tour a minor operation was carried 
out by the Brigade. The 1st C. 1\1. R. on the left of the 
Battalion 'v ere ordered to carry out a raid to procure 
identifications of the opposing troops. The 4th C. 1\1. R. 
were to make a demonstration and fake attack, with the 
object of creating a diversion and to cover the retirement 
of the 1st C. 1\1. R. The Battalion distracted the enemy 
so successfully, especially by the preparatory bombard- 
ment ,vith trench-mortars, that a heavy retaliation \vas 
concentrated on them, destroying their assembly trench 
and inflicting so many casualties that their fake 
attack \vas abandoned. The 1st C. 1\1. R. carried out 
their raid \vithout a casualty before the enemy realized 
\'That ,vas taking place. Their comlnanding officer tele- 
graphed his gratitude for the whole-hearted support 
given by the Battalion. The Brigade allotted fiye extra 
"lea ves" to the Battalion in recognition of its unselfish 
part in the operation. 
They returned to rest billets in Etrun on the 23rd going 
into Divisional Reserve. Here they spent their second 
Chrishnas; fe,v being still with the Battalion who caIne 
to France ,vith it. The men \vere fortunate to be out of 
the line and able to have a good Christmas dinner. The 
extra rations and comforts ,vere largely due to the kind- 
ness and generosity of Lieut.-Colonel H. C. Cox, Honorary 
Colonel of the 9th 1\Iississauga Horse, who, every Christ- 
mas sent to Lieut.-Colonel Gordon .;E100 to be spent in 
comforts for the lnen. The officers had a particularly 
gay time. Captain H. Franks abandoned his dignified 
office of adjutant and became the centre of amuselnent 
during and after the dinner. 
The Battalion ,vas back in the trenches for the N e,v 



VIMY RIDGE 


Year. The \veather ,vas wet and the rain caused many 
fatigues in repairing the disintegrating trenches. It was 
relieved by the 5th Cameron Highlanders in the middle of 
the month and went into billets at Bois-des-Alleux. 
These ,vere for the most part Nissen Huts, tucked away 
in a green wood beside the river Scarpe, about a mile north 
of l\Iaræuil. They lay in the shadow of the church, at 

Iont St. Eloy', a battered remnant of a previous \var; 
although occasionally shelled, it served as an excellent 
observation post commanding a wonderful vie\v of Vimy 
Ridge. The Battalion went into the left sub-sector of the 
Ecurie front, 'where it remained until February 5th, then 
returning to Yont St. Eloy. 
On the morning of the 11 th the unit started on a long 
march to an entirely different area to train and "rest"; 
a very ambiguous ,vord in the vocabulary of the army. 
The first day the Battalion and Transport marched ten 
miles north-west to Houdain and the next dav ahnost as 
far to Burbure, a slnall town two miles south of Lillers. 
It subsequently became one of the favourite billets of the 
Battalion. The men settled do\vn to five \veeks of arduous 
training. It was, in reality, their first preparation for 
the assault on Vimy Ridge. They did all the things ,vhich 
they had practised before going to France, but in addition 
they rehearsed \vhat was expected would happen in the 
near future. They brought into play every ann of their 
service which Inight be used in a big attack. Scouts and 
Signallers recei\"ed special training. The Battalion as a 
\vhole assaulted in new tormations on taped trenches and 
later the Brigade practised as one, in similar tactics. 
Xothing \vas left undone \vhich had any bearing on the 
necessary preparation for a machine-like assault at the 
a ppoin ted time. 
There were diversions in the training. The Corps 
Comlnander, General Byng, presented decorations to the 
Brigade on the 25th, and "C" Company had the honour 
of forming one of the companies in the composite battalion 
,vhich was inspected. There ,vere plenty of sports to 
break the Inonotony, culminating in a Divisional 
Sports Day at the end of the month when the Battalion

had the distinction of ,vinning first prize in the bombing 
competition. 
On l\Iarch 18th the Battalion started on its return to 
the trenches. It moved off at 9.15 a.m., with the Trans- 
port and Details, Trench-
lortar Section, Orderly Room 
and Band. It returned by different but parallel routes 
through Ruitz, ,vhere half the Battalion ,vas left for a 
time 'with l\Iajor Patterson, the rest continuing to Forester 
Camp. On the 21st, "A" and "B" Companies relieved 
part of the 9th Brigade. They left Yillers-au-Bois at 
7 p.m. and marched to l\font St. Eloy. As it 'was dark 
they took the road down to La Targette, through the 
ruins of Neuville St. \7 aast, entered the trenches and pro- 
ceeded into the front line, 1,000 yards to the north-east 
of the town. Because of the "'Tinter rains the trenches 
were wet and uninviting. Five days later, "C" and "D" 
Companies relieved "A" and "B" Companies and Major 
Patterson took over the forward headquarters. 
As previously explained, the ,vhole of No l\fan's Land 
on this front ,vas a series of mine-craters with saps 
leading into them and continuous raids made the Can- 
adians dOlninant over their front. On l\Iarch 30th, 
Lieutenant E. G. Richards led a battle patrol between 
Devon and Vernon craters to the enemy's line. The 
patrol which ,vas divided into hvo parties of three men 
each, one under Corporal Martin and the other under 
Corporal Dawson, crawled in the dark to the enemy's 
parapet. They saw three Germans \vhom they bOlnbed 
and killed; in the next ba
r they killed two more. By this 
time the enemy ,vas aroused and the raiding party with- 
dre",T; the posts in Vernon and Devon craters bombarding 
the enemy with bombs and rifle grenades inflicting 
considerable damag.e. Lieutenant Richards, who had 
been ,vounded at the outset but continued, was again hit, 
this time by a cylindrical stick bomb which left a gaping 
wound in his abdomen. He was a Xiagara fruit-grower 
before the war, a po,verfully-built man, as brave as he ,vas 
strong. It was not his first raid, he had been on several 
bèfore; on one occasion he and Lieutenant T. ,Yo E. 
Dixon entered the German trenches in front of Ecurie 



YIl\IY RIDGE 


and nailed up a sign: "Colne on over and \ve ,viII treat you 
right." This tÏIne he ,vas not so fortunate; he was 
cra,vling through the enemy's 'wire \vhen mortally 
wounded. Corporal ::\Iartin and Pri,
ate F. Brazeau, ,vith 
great difficulty, succeeded in dragging him out of the 
entanglelnent. Lieutenant Gregory Clark, ,vho ,vas on 
duty in the front trenches, ,vent out to assist the 
others who 'were then trying to place Richards on 
a duck-board. Finally, Lieutenant T. 'V. E. Dixon 
arrived with a stretcher party and carried hÜn in 
but unfortunately this gallant officer died the next 
morning in the Field Alnbulance. T\vo days later, 
General B.rng sent this lnessage to the Brigade: "Please 
convey to all ranks of the 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade 
our great appreciation of their repeatedly successful raids." 
The Battalion arrived in rest billets in Villers-au-Bois 
on April 1st and made final preparations for the attack 
on Yimy Ridge; practising over ilnaginary trenches and 
having a thorough inspection of kit and equipment. On 
the night of 5th/6th, the men ,vent again into the same 
line, relieving one company of the 52nd Battalion and 
one COlnpany of the 60th Battalion. Headquarters ,vere 
located in Goodman Tunnel. The trenches had become 
worse, some were partially filled \vith ,vater; large work- 
ing parties, however, soon drained and repaired the 
jumping off places. On the night of the 6/7th, two 
parties under Lieutenants F. A. IIerman and H. Bennett 
successfullv cut the wire in front of "P" line and the 
follo,ving 
ight, beneath a searching moon, parties from 
"A" Company, under Lieutenants T. ,Yo E. Dixon and 
G. T. Aitkens cut a line through the ,vire between the 
craters, Albany, Devon and Yernon. Lieutenant A,itkens 
had heen slightly ,vounded on the previous day but 
pluckily returned to duty to participate in the big show 
where, at its outset, he was \vounded again. 
Toward the end of 1916, the Battle of the Somme "
as 
still in progress but the possibility of a break-through was 
doubtful. General Joffre proposed a simultaneous attack 
by both annies on a ,vide front. The British \vere to 
attack froln Yimy to Bapaulne and the French from the

Somme to the Oise. 'Vhen it was discovered in February, 
1917, that the Germans were retiring from the Somme 
Salient to the Hindenburg line this plan was postponed. 
General Nivelle* succeeded General Joffre in February, 
and, modifying the plans, decided to attack in April. 
The British First Army under General Horne, and the 
Third Army under General Allenby, attacked on April 
9th. The Fifth .A.rmy on the extreme right, south of 
Arras in front of Bullecourt, also participated. but only 
to support the flank of the main attack. The French, 
who \vere to attack on the 12th, were delayed until the 
16th. The British offensive over a fifteen mile front 
developed into the Battle of Arras, of which Vimy Ridge 
was a part. They almost succeeded in brea"king through 
south-east of Arras, but \vere stopped at the strong 
defences of the Hindenburg line. Apart from the crippl- 
ing blow to the enemy, the great success of this battle was 
the accomplishment of the Canadian Corps in capturing 
Vimy Ridge. Its immediate advantage was the securing 
of the left flank in the Arras attack but its profound impor- 
tance was realized in l\farch, 1918, during the German 
offensive. Ludendorff admitted that it stood in his way 
of success at that time. The Prime l\finistert in the 
British House of Commons, referred to it as the "fruits of 
the first experiment in the unity of command." In spite 
of this statement it is an interesting fact that the French 
Higher Command did not think that Vimy Ridge could be 
taken under the proposed British plan; the great success 
of this operation, therefore, was one of the proudest 
achievements of General Horne's First Army and espec- 
ially General Byng's Canadian Corps. 
No battle could have been prepared more thoroughly. 
Every unit from corps to platoon knew exactly \yhat it 
had to do. Prior to the attack a stupendous bombard- 
ment \vas kept up day and night for a \veek along this 
huge front, flattening e'
ery obstruction and halnmering 
the back areas (2,880 guns fired approximately 88,000 
tons of ammunition, almost hvice the alllount expended

in preparation for the Battle of the Somme). In Gun 
Valley, behind the Arras-Bethune road, artillery of all 
calibre stood almost wheel to ,vheel giving the Canadians 
the greatest moral and physical support they had ever 
had before going into action. )lines were laid under the 
German front line; one on the Battalion's front bet,veen 
Chassery and Albany craters was to be blo,vn, thirty 
seconds after zero hour. The many dumps were filled 
with consolidating materials, ammunition, ,vater and 
every conceivable necessity. At least a quarter-of-a- 
million men were to participate in this gigantic thrust. 
Each infantryman had his usual equipment as well as 
twenty-four hours' rations and forty-eight hours' iron 
rations, fi,ye sand bags, Ì\vo flares, four bombs, flags and 
everything else that an emergency might demand. 
Apart frolD the previous training, everyone was made 
familiar with all the details of the attack. AIDple ,varn- 
ing ,vas given for officers and lnen to discuss the plans 
and lnake arrangements for eventualities. Four days in 
ad vance, preliIninary instructions were circulated and on 
the 7th operation orders were received for the assault and 
capture of Yimy Ridge. Colonel Gordon issued his 
Battalion operation orders the same night and held a 
final conference with his Company Comlnanders the 
following day. 
The Canadian Corps which ,vas on the extreme left of 
the First ArIny, attacked ,vith four Divisions. The 
Third Division faced in the direction of Vi my Village with 
the 7th and 8th Brigades in line and the 9th Brigade in 
support. The 8th Brigade attacked \vith the 1st, 2nd 
and 4th C. )1. R. Battalions in line and the 5th C. 1\1. R. 
in support. The J.th C. 1\1. R. was the most northerly 
Battalion of the 8th Brigade. On its right was the 2nd 
C. )1. !{. and on its left the R. C. R. of the 7th Brigade. 
Each battalion aJvanced in four ,vaves, each of one 
company, ".ith two platoons leading and one following for 
the purposp of Inoppil1g up. Each company had four 
officers and about one hundred and fifty men. The final 
objective of the initial attack was three-quarters of a mile 
frolll the front line, beyond La Folie Farm and the

Germans' third line of forward defences. This, briefly, 
was the order of attack and disposition of the units. In 
condensed detail the companies of the 4th C. 1\1. R. \vere 
given the following objectives: "A" Company, under 
l\Iajor B. R. Gale, was to take the first line on a 350 yard 
front, cOlnpletely mop it up and then pass on to Z\vischen 
Trench. Captain M. 1\1. Hart, 'with ,. B" Company, ,vas 
to pass through "A" COlnpany and deploy to attack a 
strong communication trench, Artillerie 'Yeg, on the 
northerly flank and a smaller trench on the right and 
southerly flank and then meet his 'frontal objective, the 
Zwischen system 'which was the strong second line of 
defence. " C" Company, commanded by l\Iajor A. P. 
Menzies, had the third line of defence, Fickle Trench, a 
thousand yards from our front line. If, however, they 
found that "B" Company was held up at Zwischen 
Trench, they were to combine with them until it was 
reduced and then attack Fickle together. l\Iajor A. A. 
1\lacKenzie with "D" Company had orders to take the 
crest of the Ridge between L'Ecole Commune and La 
Folie Farm and to assist, if necessary, the R. C. R. Reg- 
iment on the left to take the former and the flnd C. 1\1. R. 
Battalion on the right to take the latter point d'appui. 
The assaulting troops spent the early part of the night 
of the 8th in dug-outs and tunnels in and behind the front 
line. These concentrating points \vere necessarily 
crowded. Companies were squeezed into the ordinary 
accommodation of a platoon. The men could not lie 
dOlvn with comfort, so they sat around the light of a 
candle and dozed or played poker for unusual stakes, 
collecting paper credits \vhich \vere given freely by the 
pessimistic members \vho sat in the game. Early in the 
morning they moved out to the jumping-off points. The 
bombardment had ceased. There was a deathlike silence. 
An occasional shell \vould scream across the sky and 
accentuate the stillness. The rattle of equipment, the 
muffled curses of the sergeants calling for less noise, added 
to the weird tension. All were hoping their movements 
'\vould not be detected. Finally, the order to fix bayonets 
\vas given and a ripple of clicks passed along the line and 



VIMY RIDGE 


died with the last obstinate rifle. An ominous whistle 
was blown somewhere in the German trenches, but 
nothing developed. The enemy seemed una ware of his 
impending fate. 
At 5.30 a.m. Easter 1\londay, April 9th, the sharp bark 
of our barrage opened. Half a minute later the mine at 
Goodlnan Tunnel sap ,vas sprung and "A" Company was 
on its ,yay across the hundred yards of No l\Ian's Land. 
Immediately the enemy's barrage was laid down on our 
trenches. By 5.35 a.m. "A" Company was in possession 
of the Gennan front line and a fe,v minutes later the 
men were entering the immediate support trench. The 
enemy's barrage shortened to his o,vn front line. Lieu- 
tenant T. 'V. E. Dixon took up a position and observed 
from the top of Edmonton Crater reporting the progress 
of the attack to Battalion Headquarters. The troops 
followed closely the creeping barrage and in clock,vork 
succession took each objective. The final objective was 
reached in less than two hours, and by 7.35 a.m. the 
Companies had reported in writing by runners that they 
,vere in position and their flanks resting on the points laid 
do,vn in their orders. It ,vas found that the Battalion on 
the left had eased over to the north, leaving a gap of a 
hundred yards. Lieutenant B. C. Pierce took a platoon 
of " A" Company and a fe,v other Details that he collected 
and filled this gap and later successfully assisted the 
Battalion on his left to repel a counter-attack. His 
presence of mind and quick action undoubtedly relieved 
an a\vk,vard situation. On account of the pressure on 
the left, reinforcements ,vere asked for and Lieutenant 
E. A. Abbey, who was subsequently killed, was sent for- 
ward with eighty men. l\fajor A. P. l\lenzies also gave 
assistance to Lieutenant Pierce; they both contributed to 
the success of the enterprise and later, in a calmer 
moment, ,vere standing on the Ridge shaking hands and 
offering mutual congratulations when Lieutenant Pierce 
,vas shot through the head by a sniper in La Folie '","ood.

been practically obliterated, organized his men ,vith 
characteristic coolness and consolidated the position 
and ,vent to the assistance of J\Iajor 
Ienzies. Later 
he ,vent fonvard to reconnoitre and sent back most 
valuable information. For his splendid leadership he 
was a-warded the 1\Iilitary Cross. Lieutenant 'V. G. 
Butson, ,vho had commanded his Company but a fe,v 
hours, ,vas so severely ,vounded that he died the follow- 
ing day. This gallant officer stepped into the place of 
J.\tlajor A. A. 1\facKenzie, 1\1:. C., who ,vas ,vounded at the 
outset, and ,vith courage and tenacity led his men to the 
brilliant accomplishment of their task. 
The Signallers, under Lieutenant J. R. Woods, did 
excellent ,vork following clo.sely behind the infantry with 
their drums of wire and reported at 9.30 a.m. that they 
had established a station in Zwischen and connected it 
with Headquarters. This was the first wire available 
on this sector and was of invaluable assistance to the artil- 
lery. Colonel Gordon then ,vent forward to Z'wischen 
with Lieutenant T. 'V. E. Dixon, ,vho was acting as Scout 
Officer, and left l\Iajor 'V. R. Patterson in charge of 
Battalion Headquarters. On arriving at the fon,vard 
Headquarters Lieutenant Dixon, with a few men, scouted 
the for,vard positions and reported the location of the 
front line to Colonel Gordon, who went forward and 
inspected them. It was, found that a strong point had 
been established well in front and toward La Folie 'Vood 
and that Lieutenant G. Clark of "D" Company and his 
men, ,vho ,vere holding it, were receiving severe punish- 
ment from machine-gun fire. During the afternoon, 
Colonel Gordon inspected the front line and found the 
situation ,veIl in hand. It became obvious that it would be 
suicidal for Lieutenant Clark to attempt to hold the 
strong-point and he ,vas ordered to ,vithdraw his men as 
soon as darkness fell. No one could have been Inore 
cheery or offered greater encouragement to his Inen than 
Lieutenant Clark. After his Company Commander and 
Second-in-Command became casualties he took charge 
leading the COIn pany to its final objective and then 
established the strong-point \vhich he personally organ-

ized and where he remained under severe machine-gun 
fire until ordered to withdraw. For this devotion to duty 
he ,vas awarded the l\Iilitary Cross. C. S. :\1. 1\IcQuarrie, 
who was captured the previous year at Sanctuary \Vood 
but managed to escape to our lines and re-join, was 
.wounded ,vhile rendering valuable service for which he 
won the D. C. 1\1. 
During the night, patrols ,vere sent out to keep in 
touch ,vith the enemy. One patrol, under Lieutenant 
L. G. 
Iills, encountered an enemy patrol, 'which they 
engaged. A fusillade of bombs scattered them and they 
fled, leaving behind one of their number dead. Also, dur- 
ing the night, supplies of ammunition, bombs, ,vater, rum 
and rations ,vere successfully delivered to the fighting 
troops. 
The weather, as usual on the day of a British attack, 
,vas disappointing. It was ,vet and ra,v the day before 
and on the morning of the attack snow fell making the 
going heavy. The men went forward in almost blinding 
sleet. Later in the day the storm cleared and the sun 
came out. During the next t\VO days sno,v fell until the 
ground \vas ,vhite. They had discarded their great-coats 
and in consequence suffered from the cold. There was a 
curious phenomenon, still unexplained, ,vhich raised the 
curiosity of the men on the morning of the assault. As 
they crossed No l\fan's Land they noticed the water in the 
shell-holes was gory. In fact some of the men were quite 
positive that it was blood; but their judgment was 
probably ,varped by the circumstances and in the heat 
of the moment had no time to make an examination. As 
its appearance was coincident with the snow it would at first 
suggest to a student of Biology tha t it might be the minute 
algæ (Spærella nl
valis) which s,veeps over the lnelting 
Arctic snow and turns it blood-red; but, as the telnper- 
ature was not sufficiently low for this small organism 
it lnay have been SOlne species of small piglnented 
protozoan sometÎInes found in temporary pools and 
which had been lying in the encysted stage until the 
sno,v and rain fell. It has remained a lnystery to the 
Battalion.

The enemy offered a very weak resistance; the bom- 
bardment had been too severe. Trenches were oblit- 
erated and unrecognizable, even the strong Zwischen 
Stellung was so battered that only its deep dug-outs 
remained. The usual trying counter-attacks did not 
develop, and as previously mentioned, it was not until 
all the objectives had been reached that serious losses 
were incurred. These were chiefly caused by keeping in 
touch with the retiring enemy and in establishing strong 
points. From the Ridge the Germans could be seen in 
the distance limbering up their guns and moving off at a 
gallop. The ground fell away almost steeply into La 
Folie Wood, where they were making a stand. Beyond 
the Wood was Vimy and the enemy's last defensive 
position, the Vimy-Lens line. 
The great day the men had been preparing for and 
anticipating had come and gone. It was an unparalleled 
success, working out as planned. Hundreds of prisoners, 
including three officers, one a colonel, passed back 
through the Battalion t.o the prison cages. Seven 
machine-guns and trench mortars and other trophies were 
taken. The Battalion had done all and more than it 
had been asked to do. Considering the magnitude of the 
operations, the casualties on the 9th were light. In the 
original assault there were practically no casualties, most 
of them occurred afterwards, when the machine-gun posts 
in the outpost line were being maintained. l\fan
1 'were 
sniped when they silhouetted themselves on the skyline. 
One officer and forty-three men \vere killed, one officer 
died of wounds, five officers and one hundred and thirty- 
one men 'wounded. 
On the following day, the 10th, twenty-five men, under 
Lieutenant T. ,Yo E. Dixon, were sent out as a patrol 
with instructions to attempt to get as far as Petit Vimy 
and find out the location and strength of the enemy. 
After working their way down the sunken road into La 
Folie \Vood they discovered a force of Germans with a 
machine-gun which opened fire on them. As the trench 
they occupied ran into the area of the Battalion on the 
left it was arranged that a joint attack should follow a 



VIMY RIDGE 


bombardment the next day. Otherwise, the day 'vas 
quiet. Gnfortunately, Lieutenant E. A. Abbey, after 
surviying the first day, was killed. It ,vas a great 
handicap to the Battalion to lose this officer. The battle 
field ,vas cleared and the wounded evacuated. The 
:\Iedical Officer, l\Iajor H. C.. Davis, had a dirty little 
shelter behind the crest in which he cared for the wounded. 
He worked throughout the day, with a door for an 
operating table until all the wounded were cleared. 
There was another Davis attached to the Battalion- 
Captain ,Yo H. Davis, Chaplain, recently joined, who at 
once became endeared to the men. The first. glin1pse 
they had of their beloved Padre in action was seeing him 
in the twilight on the crest of the Ridge, his steel helmet 
hung over his arln, prayer-book in hand, burying the dead, 
regardless of shells dropping around him. The Battalion 
'was blessed with hvo great Davis's. 
On the morning of the 11 th orders were received to 
dislodge the enemy from a trench half-way down the 
reverse slope of the Ridg
. To do this at least one hun- 
dred men would have been required and the casualties 
would have been very heavy o\ving to the distance they 
'would have to go over exposed ground down the face of 
the hill and the difficulty of ho,vitzers being effective in 
dropping shells over such a sharp declivity. Colonel 
Gordon, in arrangång for artillery support, found that 
the gunners had no officer available to observe and that 
they had only two hundred rounds of delayed-fuse shells 
to shoot. He, therefore, yolunteered to go forward and 
observe for the gunners, but before he got them accur- 
ately registered on their target he was almost blown out 
of his observation-post. This bOlnbardment was so 
successful that Lieutenant T. 'V. E. Dixon, who had done 
such excellent \\.ork already, for ,vhich he was recommend- 
ed for the l\lilitary Cross, ,vas able to take a patrol 
through the wood to the foot of the slope ,vithout loss. 
The action of Colonel Gordon undoubtedly resulted in 
the saving of many lives. During the afternoon the 
Battalion ,vas heavily shelled for four hours. l\luch of 
their ne,v trenches ,vere flattened and ten men became

casualties. It was during this bombardment that Lieut- 
enant C. L. Johnston was killed. 
They had been in the line for sixty-three hours under 
the most trying weather conditions without blankets or 
greatcoats and with a very meagre rest the night before 
the attack. They ,vere relieved in a snowstorm on the 
night of the 11th and tramped back through the mud, 
over the ground they had captured, to Neuville St. 
'T aast. The condition of the ground and the weather 
was so terrible and the men so tired that the Battalion 
had great difficulty getting out. They had been looking 
forward to returning to the comfortable huts they 
had left on the first of the month, but 'were bitterly 
disappointed to find themselves in an ilnprovised 
camp, which had hardly been completed, kno'wn as 
Dumbell Camp. Insufficient tents ,vithout floorboards 
"
ere pitched on the muddy ground behind the front line; 
consequently, the men had only the sodden ground on 
\vhich to rest after this unusually arduous time. Outside 
of the trenches it was the worst place the Battalion had 
experienced since arriving in France. They spent hvo 
days trying to improve their habitation and finally 
moved the whole camp from the mire it was in to slightly 
higher and less saturated ground. They had but one 
day in the ne,v camp when they were ordered to go into 
bivouacs at Fort George, a redoubt built in the support 
trench system a few hundred yards north of Neuville St. 
'T aast . 
\Yhile at Dumbell Camp, General Lipsett addressed the 
Battalion, congratulating Colonel Gordon, his officers, 
K. C. O's and men on their discipline and bearing during 
the engagement. He complimented them for the precise 
,yay they had carried out their orders and thanked them 
for their share in the successful achievement of his 
Division: 


Colonel Gordon, Officers, N.C.O.'s and men of the 4th C.M.R. 
Battalion. General Elmsley gave me kind permission to come and 
tell you how pleased I am to thank you all for what you have done 
in the late engagement and which is still going on. It was the most 
complete victory in the history of the British Army. So far, we 
have taken approXimately 12,000 German Prisoners, 160 Guns and

several of the, enemy'8 most important positions. The Corps and April 
Army Commander both came around and expressed their great appre- 1917 
ciation. of the Division's work of which the 8th Brigade was very 
prominent. In this battIe, there must have been nearly a quarter of 
a million troops engaged. The history of VIMY RIDGE is well 
known now; it was in 1914, the French made a big attack here and 
twice in 1915 but only achieved partial success at very heavy cost, 
therefore the Canadians should feel proud that their efforts met with 
such marked success. These wars are very trying, but it is for us 
to continue, and it is the men who can come on and fight that will 
win the war. This is what the British and Canadians have shown by 
the recent battle. The Artillery preparation was splendid and we 
expected few casualties. I am sorry to say they were rather heavy, 
but these lives were not wasted, they did not die in vain. The credit 
devolves on yourselves, your officers, n.c.o.'s and men alike. The 
hardships and discomforts of holding the line, the monotonous details 
of preparation, I appreciate, but it is one satisfaction to know that 
we have one of the finest Divisions in France and of which the 4th 
C.M.R. forms no inconsiderable part. The engagement is still pro- 
ceeding, there will be more Bosche to handle, but I have no doubt 
as to the way in which you will handle them. I cannot fully express 
my thanks to you all for the way in which you carried out the work 
you had to do, but it mak-es me feel very proud to be in Command 
of this Division. I thank you all very much. 


For a week during the continuance of the battle the 
Battalion provided large 'working parties for salvaging 
and making roads. Fresh troops were engaged and the 
Germans gradually pushed back beyond Vimy. The 
British 'were in complete control of the Ridge, ,vhich 
commanded the broad plain to the east. \Ve had 
ad vanced to a line running through A vion, J\Iéricourt and 
Acheville, when the Battalion was ordered to relieve the 
5th C. 1\1. R. facing this line. This was done on the night 
of April 21st. The Battalion's ne,v position was approx- April 21, 
imately a mile south-west of A vion, adjacent to the 1917 
Lens-Arras railway and about two miles north-e
st from 
the crest of the Ridge which they took on April 9th. The 
line ran more or less through the German defence system, 
known as the Thélus-Vilny-Lens line. Some parts of it 
,vere still in the possession of the enelny. A series of

at night by large patrols. 
Yimy Ridge had been included in an offensive pro- 
gralnme arranged between General Joffre and General 
Haig in Xovelnber, 1916. The date for its capture was

Nivelle after the Somme. On February 27th, 1917, the 
British '\Yar Cabinet decided to place the British Army at 
the disposal of the French Commander-in-Chief for his 
Spring offensive. As previously mentioned, the French at- 
tack followed the British a .week later, on the 16th, and un- 
fortunately it was not the success that ,vas anticipated. 
Other French attacks followed on April 23rd and l\fay 3rd. 
The French Nation expected more than ,vas accomplished 
and the Government appointed General Pétain as Chief of 
the General Staff on April 29th, and finally, on l\lay 10th, 
General Pétain succeeded General Nivelle as Commander- 
in-Chief. 
The British attacked simultaneously with the French 
on April 23rd. This day found the 4th C. M. R. still in 
the line and they were ordered to undertake a flanking 
operation to protect the Fifth Imperial Division, which ,vas 
attacking in the direction of Avion, over a front extending 
from the Avion-Arras railway to the Souchez River; their 
first objective including part of the Thélus- Vimy-Lens 
system. The 8th Brigade was to co-operate by advancing 
its left flank to protect the right of the Fifth Ilnperial 
Division; the 4th C. 1\1. R. on the left of the Brigade, 
participated in the operation. 
In the absence of Colonel Gordon, who was on leave, 
l\Iajor Patterson issued orders for a platoon of "A" 
COlnpany, under Lieutenant l\f. lV. l\lacDowell, to move 
forward under the barrage shortly after zero hour. 'The 
platoon ,vas divided, two sections under Sergeant Griffin 
,vere to advance along a sunken road, bomb the enemy out 
of his trenches and join up with the other party of two 
sections under Sergeant Duncan, who were to go by the 
railway embankment to the point ,vhere the enelny trench 
entered it. A supporting platoon, under Lieutenant D. S. 
Fleek, ,vas detailed to dig and maintain three rifle pits 
about 150 yards apart in advance of our front line, and 
also provide a covering party in the vacated trenches. 
Lieutenant T. W. E. Dixon, who was again acting as 
scout officer, reported at 1.30 a.m. that the rifle pits had 
been dug, according to orders. At 4.45 a.m. the guns 
opened and the attacking platoon followed. The bar- 



VIlVIY RIDGE 


rage lasted for half an hour, it ,vas then daylight and the 
enemy immediately opened an intense machine-gun and 
rifle fire from the vicinity of the railway. Lieutenant 
l\IacDowell with the right party got within fifty yards of 
the enemy's trench when he came under such heavy fire 
and was receiving so many casualties among his men that 
he decided to take cover and give battle to the machine- 
gun nests. They ,vere kept under a continuous fire all 
day and at dusk a party of 150 of the enemy counter- 
attacked. His party ,vas forced to retire but fought the 
enemy ,vith bombs and grenades until they reached one of 
the advanced rifle pits and dispersed the attack with the 
aid of a Lewis gun inflicting heavy losses and practically 
wiping out the enemy's party. 
Sergeant Duncan, 'with the left party of t,vo sections, 
got ,veIl along the railway through several gun pits until 
within fifty yards of the enemy trench, \\yhen serious 
resistance was encountered. They took cover in a culvert 
and gun-pits which they held all day. The enemy had 
three machine guns ,veIl placed in the railway embank- 
ment and 'were holding up the advance of the battalion 
on the left. An attempt was made to rush the machine- 
gun posts, but at once four men ,vere hit and the attempt 
was abandoned. As the party ,vas so far in advance of 
the troops on the left, it ,vas decided to 'withdraw them 
at dusk. Instructions had been received from the Bri- 
gade to withdra,v before dark, but it ,vas impossible to 
comply on account of the counter-attack. 
The casualties 'were very severe: Lieutenants D. S. 
Fleek and A. E. Allen were wounded, four men were killed, 
thirty-four 'wounded and eight missing. The bombard- 
ment had not been sufficient to demolish the enemy's 
machine-guns and his defences 'vere too strong for such 
a small attacking force, despite its outstanding pluck and 
gallantry. Lieutenant l\facDowell ,vas awarded the l\Iili- 
tary Cross for remaining, after he had orders to retire, 
re-organizing his men and breaking up a counter-attack, 
although they were greatly outnumbered. Both Ser- 
geants Griffin and Duncan were recommended for the 
D. C. 1\1. and received the 
Iilitaljr 1Iedal. Sergeant

Duff, who subsequently ,vas granted a commission, did 
valuable work in tr
Ting to form a liaison with the bat- 
talion on his left. He exposed himself on several occa- 
sions to get information for his Battalion. 
General Lipsett, in for,varding the report of the opera- 
tions to the Corps, complimented the Battalion: "I 
think this operation ,vas ,veIl carried out, the men gained 
their objective in tunnel under rail\\Tay and held it all day. 
In my opinion a great deal of credit is due to the manner 
in which the operation ,vas planned and to the gallantry 
displayed by all ranks who took part. The lnen had 
finally to be withdrawn because they were in an absolutely 
isolated position." 
The night following this operation, the Battalion 
handed oyer to details of the P. P. C. L. I. and 49th Bat- 
talion, returning to the back area at Yillers-au-Bois. 
They spent a comfortable ,veek. in huts, 'where they 
re-equipped, had baths, and were paid. l\lore reinforce- 
ments arrived which made the number received during 
the month, seven officers and 312 other ranks. This rest 
brought them to the end of April. The enemy had been 
completely driven from the Ridge, and was still being 
pressed yigorously. A review* of the month reveals the 
effectiveness of the Battalion, although acting on such a 
small frontage. The casualties ,vere not too severe, 
considering what was accolnplished. t 
On l\lay Srd Lieutenant-General Sir Julian Byng sent 
the follo'wing message to all units of the Canadian Corps: 


The brilliant operations during the past month, culminating in the 
capture of Arleux and Fresnoy, seem to give me the opportunity of ex- 
pressing to all ranks the pride I feel in commanding the Canadian Corps. 
Since the 9th April, when the offensive against Vimy Ridge began, 
till the morning of l\1ay 3rd, when Fresnoy was captured and consoli- 
dated, it has been one series of successes only obtained by troops whose 
courage, discipline and initiative stand pre-eminent. New villages have 
passed into our hands. Eight German Divisions have been met and de- 
fe
Jted. Over 5,000 prisoners have been captured and booty, com- 


· 253 prisoners were taken, including three officers, one a colonel, four machine- 
guns and three trench mortars were captured. 
t Casualties during the month of April: three officers killed, one died of 
wounds, and six wounded. Forty-eight men killed, 175 wounded and twelve 
missing.

prising some 64 guns and howitzers, 106 trench mortars and 126 May 
machine-guns are now trophies of the Canadians. 1917 
The training undergone during the winter has borne its fruit, and 
it is this training, coupled with the zeal and gaJlantry which are so 
conspicuous in all ranks of the Corps, th9.t will continue to give results 
as potent and far reaching as those which began the capture of Vimy 
Ridge. 


'Vith the advent of ::\Iay the weather improved; there 
were a fe\v sho\vers but for the most part the days were 
bright and warm. The ground \vas drying and altogether 
both living and ,vorking conditions were vastly improved. 
The Canadian Corps was still engaged under the First 
Army in pressing back the enemy. The First and 
Second Divisions \vere employed on l\Iay Srd in the 
general attack heretofore mentioned. The front was 
approximately three miles beyond the village of Vimy 
on the l\Iéricourt-....c\.chevilIe-Oppy line. The Battalion 
did not take part in this attack, but replaced a battalion 
of the 7th Brigade at the Pylones, a part of the old front 
line it had been in a month before. On the 6th they left 
these shelters for others on La Folie Ridge, where they 
continued to supply large \vorking parties. 'Yhile making 
this shift they \vere heavily shelled, and seven casualties 
resulted. Lieutenants T. Todd and G. V. Cooke were 
wounded, three men ,vere killed and t\VO ,vounded. On 
the 10th they relieved two Companies of the 1st C. 1\1. R. 
and one Company of the 2nd C. 1\1. R. in the line on the 
l\Iéricourt-.A.cheville front. On the first day in the line, 
Lieutenant H. C. Rounds was wounded. 
Lieutenant-Colonel H. D. L. Gordon, D. S. 0., who 
reorganized the Battalion after Sanctuary 'Vood, and 
under ,,-hose leadership the unit distinguished itself both 
on the Somme and Yimy Ridge, left on l\Iay 16th to take 
command of the 8th Reserve ßa ttalion in England. He 
was succeeded by l\Iajor 'V. R. Patterson, D. S. 0., one 
of the fe\v remaining original officers. 
The month of June, for the Battalion, was very similar 
to the previous month. Two tours were made in the 
front line, both about 1,500 yards south of ,,l vion, in 
front of :\Iéricourt. Their position on the second tour 
was adjacent to the scene of their fighting of April 23rd,

1917; the lines around A vion having advanced very little 
in a month. On the first tour, during the early mor
ing of 
the 5th, a strong German patrol was seen approaching one 
of the posts which was part of our front line. Captain 
H. A. Scott organized two parties to try and surround 
the hostile patrol; one party moving down the l\lont 
Forêt-l\léricourt Road and the other a little to the 
north. They successfully closed in on the raiders, killing 
four and capturing an un,vounded prisoner of the 4th 
Guards Division. 
During the next day the enemy dropped numerous gas 
shells and at intervals bombarded our line. Lieutenant 
E. Davison "
as killed and Lieutenant 1\1. 'V. IVlacDowell 
wounded. During the following night a patrol under 
Lieutenant A. D. l\lcDonald, \vas protecting a party 
engaged in digging jumping-off trenches. The patrol 
encountered a pro\vling party of the enemy ,vhom they 
attacked so smartly that they fled in disorder, leaving 
behind several of their numbers. 
The warm sunny days and their long evenings gave 
excellent visibility; consequently, aeroplanes were con- 
tinuously crossing and re-crossing the line. The slower- 
going contact-patrols "taxied" up and down the front 
in the early mornings and often during the day. The 
great superiority \vhich the British Air Force had at- 
tained was very evident. Large bOlnbing flights could 
be seen returning at sunrise or heard going over in the 
night. During this less eventful period the interest in the 
air was singularly noticeable. The ,vriter of the Regi- 
mental Diary recorded almost daily this activity and 
gave it equal weight in importance with the shelling and 
counter-shelling \vhich \vas continually in progress. 
On July 1st the Battalion moved from Villers-au-Bois 
to Comox Camp, a little nearer the front, but still in the 
Reserve area. There was an unusual job that week. For 
three days large parties 'were sent to Hill 145 to build an 
observation post for His l\Iajesty the King, who 'vas 
expected on the 9th to visit the Divisional area and see 
Vimy Ridge and from it look at the places beyond, where 
fighting ,vas in progress. About a year before, His 



VI:\lY RIDGE 


l\lajesty had climbed the ruined tower of the church at 
l\lont St. Eloy and from that splendid observation point 
sa\v the celebrated Yimy Ridge, when it belonged to the 
Germans. Hill 145 was the highest point on the Ridge, 
and the Fourth Division found it one of the hardest 
nuts to crack on April 9th. It was taken the after- 
noon of the follo\ying day by a brilliant assault. The 
visit of the King created a new interest and diversified 
the routine. The Battalion was to supply a composite 
platoon frOlll each Company and line the Carency-Sou- 
chez Road to cheer His 
Iajesty as he passed, but his visit 
\vas postponed until the 11th and the Battalion relieved 
the P. P. C. L. I. in the front line on the 10th on the 
western outskirts of A vion a lnile south of Lens. This 
move deprived the men of a unique opportunity of seeing 
the King. so near the front-an unusual experience in 
modern ,var. 
The past t,vo months had seen varied fighting around 
Lens. In June the Ea ttalion played a sillall part in one 
of the larger attacks, but otherwise took no part in any 
of the big, organized efforts to \york around Lens from the 
south-west. It was an unpleasant spot; the shelling ,vas 
worse than the Battalion had experienced for some time. 
l\Iajor A. P. l\Ienzies was wounded and there were 
eighteen other casualties during this tour. Captain 
Davis, the Chaplain, was with the men as usual, in the 
front line, doing everything he could for their comfort. 
For three days he worked \vith a party of ten men, giving 
Christian burial to the dead who had been left unburied 
in the area; his courage and scorn of danger endeared him 
to all who knew him. This tour, which ended on the 
17th, was the last for a lllonth. 
The Brigade was withdrawn to train for an attack on 
the )léricourt-Acheville line. Subsequently the Bat- 
talion went into the line at Lens after an attack bv the 
First and Second Divisions and later did another toÎlr on 
the Yin1v front. The schelne on which thev trained 
during the next month was neyer carried out; they 'vere 
sent, instead, to a lnore northerly area. .A,s the new

sector became less and less and by this time the .line 
had become practicall:r stationary. The trenches were 
improved and further consolidated. A fe\v minor oper- 
ations helped to straighten the zig-zag front and apart 
from artillery duels and night bombing, nothing of signifi- 
cance happened. For the Canadian Corps, interest in 
the Vi my area was ahnost at an end. On July 29th the 
Divisional Commander, l\Iajor-General Lipsett, circu- 
lated a memorandum: 


The Third Canadian Division has just been withdrawn for training, 
after being in the line and continuously engaged since 16th March. 
All objectives were captured exactly as ordered in the attack on 
Vimy Ridge on 9th April, in subsequent operations the villages of Petit 
Vimy, Vimy, La Chaudière, Avion and German trenches were occupied 
and an advance of approximately four and one-half miles was made. I 
must thank all ranks for the interest and keenness shown in studying the 
situations and making thorough preparations as well as the admirable 
way in which the plans were carried out. 
The Battalion went to Canada Camp at Bois de la Haie 
and on the 25th marched to Auchel along the old Roman 
road, an ancient chaussée which ,vent as straight as a 
ruler north-west from Arras. They passed through 
Gauchin-Légal, Ranchicourt, Houdain and Divion to 
Auchel and were again near Burbure, in the same area 
in which they trained for the VÌ1ny sho,v. Auchel ,vas 
a sma}] to-wn about four Iniles south of Lillers and 
twice as far west of Bethune on the fringe of the Inining 
district of Lens. Lieutenant G. Clark was sent ahead 
as billeting officer and his successful efforts in billeting 
the Battalion on this particular occasion "Till be re- 
called by those officers 'whose depression at the end 
of the day was relieved by a convivial eyening with 
t,vo Staff Officers. The circumstances were as follows; 
when the Battalion left Bois de la Haie it ,vas an in- 
tensely hot August morning ,vith threatening black 
clouds rolling up and before billets ,vere reached a 
thunderstorm broke. Rain came in torrents and drenched 
the men to their skins, playing havoc with the smartness 
which had marked their appearance earlier in the day. 
In the midst of the storm the Divisional COlnmander 
suddenly appeared and not aIlo,ving his sympathy to 
overcome his sense of duty detailed two of his Staff

Officers to march with the Battalion to its billets. As 
the red-tabbed escorts were also thrust into the down- 
pour it \yas a question \vho \vere being censured. 
In the meantime Lieutenant Clark had arrived at Auchel 
and arranged the billeting. For the Headquarters' l\Iess 
he found an attractive home occupied by l\Iadame 
Cossart and her two small daughters. Her hus- 
band was then a prisoner in Germany. ''''hen she 
learned that she was to have several Canadian officers 
billeted in her houle she did not shrink from the obvious 
load which was being placed upon her household, but 
entered enthusiastically into every suggestion made by 
Lieutenant Clark. Further, she arranged for the whole 
l\Iess to be her guests at dinner the first night. The 
billeting officer, learning what had taken place en 'route, 
laid his plans to give everyone a pleasant surprise, 
including the attached Staff Officers. lIe kept every- 
thing a secret until the officers had changed their clothes 
for dinner and had assembled in the conservatory. Then 
l\Iadame and her children were introduced and her 
delightful surprise announced. The tall doors of the 
dining room were thrown open and l\Iadame presided 
over a delicious dinner of many courses and many toasts. 
The ordinary rations had been supplemented and disguised 
as only a French chef knows how, and when the Staff 
Officers left they 'were feeling so kindly to\vards the Bat- 
talion that they had nothing but praise for it. 
l\Iany happy days \vere passed in this hospitable place. 
''''hile the house could not be described as a Château, it 
had, neyertheless, many of the ear-lnarks of a very 
cultured home. The brick walls and \vrought-iron gates 
enclosed a well-kept garden and park grounds. .A 
badminton court was laid out on the lawn 'where the 
officers wore out the racquets and shuttle-cocks supplied 
by their charming hostess. Later, the officers took great 
pleasure in sending a ne\v badlninton set froll1 England 
to ::\Iadame Cossart. 
The Battalion settled down to hard training, following 
a definite syllabus, rehearsing the new fOrIuations adopted 
in Fehruary, lllarching in gas masks through an area

where lachrymatory bombs had been exploded, visiting 
the Divisional Gas school to test their helmets, and spend- 
ing almost a month preparing for the attack in front of 
:i\Iéricourt, which never matured. 'Yhile at Auchel 
Lieut.-Colonel G. F. l\IcFarland, who had previously 
commanded the 8th Reserve Battalion in England, joined 
the Battalion and reverted to the rank of l\lajor to 
become Second-in-Command. About the saIne time 
Captain 'V. V. Sifton became Adjutant. He was one 
of the original officers and went as Staff Captain to the 
2nd C. 1\1. R. Brigade, with which he was wounded at 
l\lessines in December, 1915. He rejoined in June and 
succeeded Lieutenant J. R. 'Voods, who 'was acting adju- 
tant, vice Captain Innes-Taylor, who ,vas invalided home 
after the Yimy battle. 
On August 15th, the Battalion moved to CaInblain 
l' Abbé, twenty kilometres south-east; not as attractive 
nor as comfortable a place as Auchel and where there \vas 
not the same liveliness and gaiety. The shops were 
improvised; a front room in a house would be converted 
in order to display polish, blanco, button-sticks, chocolate 
and other things not issued under K. R. or stamped with 
a broad-arrow. The
T reInained in the village four days, 
carrying out manæuvres in conjunction with the 1st 
C. 1\1. R. Orders were then received to take over some 
of the line from the First Canadian Division and the 
Battalion moved in stages to the front line. 
On the same dav that the Battalion moved to Camblain 
l' Abbé, the First 
nd Second Canadian Divisions opened 
a very determined attack on Hill 70 at Lens. The area 
around Lens was more advantageous to the defenders 
than the attackers. This dense mining area with its 
slag-heaps, railway-sidings and lnine-pits ,vas very 
difficult for the assaulting troops. In addition, the Inonth 
of August was unusually ,vet; the precipitation had 
seldom been so great and during this time rain fell nearly 
every day. The big allied offensive in Flanders ,vas also 
suffering on account of the ,veather. Again, as so often 
before and afterwards, the elements favoured the enemy. 
After a week's hard fighting with very small gains, these 



VI:\iY RIDGE 


Divisions needed rest and instead of the Third Division 
going to the 
Iéricourt front for which it had been 
training, it was turned north to make this relief. The 
first move was into reserve at Les Brébis, a half a mile 
from Bully-Grenay and two and a half miles due west of 
Loos. Its name belied its tranquillity. 'Yhen the unit 
arrived at 9.00 p.m., a high velocity naval gun was 
shelling it, but luckily did not cause any casualties. 
On the night of August 21st the Battalion relieved the 
2nd Canadian Battalion in close support and on the 
24th went into the front line about two thousand yards 
in front of Loos. The Gennans occupied Lens, but the 
line on the north and south had been pushed back until 
the Battalion was immediately north of the town running 
parallel to the Lens-Hulluck Road. No further offensive 
was carried out during the tour. The time was spent in 
improving the position and digging communication 
trenches. The rain continued, making it a most objec- 
tionable tour, the worst since April. 
After three days in the frontline they were relieved 
by two Imperial Regiments, the 1st Buffs and 1st King's 
Shropshire Light Infantry. Returning to Les Brébis for 
a day they then proceeded to Bouvigny and went into 
huts. On September 4th, they were sent back to the 
l\Iéricourt sector relieving a 'Vest Yorkshire Regiment in 
the support line around the brick-fields of La Chaudière 
near Yim
r Yillage. 
1\lost of the unsportsmanlike innovations of the enemy 
were well known to the troops, but they were yet to learn 
of the latest perversion of warfare and newest invention 
of the Germans. The Battalion left Bois-des-Alleux 
about 3.30 p.m., halted at Neuville St. Yaast for tea 
and went over the Ridge after dusk. Exactly at midnight 
they were subjected to a heavy bombardment of H.E. 
and gas-shells for half an hour. After a thirty minute 
pause they were again shelled for another half hour. 
The gas-shells w'hich sounded like " duds" were not 
discernible in the noise of the H.E. It was the first 
trial of " 1\1 ustard Gas" against the Canadian Corps. 
The men were not aware of it at the time. The officers at

Battalion Headquarters felt the effects on their throats 
and stomachs and put on their respirators before much 
damage was done. The brunt of the shelling fell on "c" 
Company occupying the brick-fields, but they did not 
realize their danger until the morning when the sun rose 
and began to vaporize the gas which had lain dormant 
in the shell holes and on the cold damp bricks. The 
men going about without their helmets were suddenly 
stricken and collapsed in scores. Ten were killed and 
over one hundred seriously gassed. All the officers had 
to be evacuated because they remained all day looking 
after their men. ''''hile none of them died from the 
effects, only one returned to France. The remnants of the 
company had to be sent to the rear in charge of the 
Padre. 
Major H. C. Davis, the 1\1. 0., did admirable work 
in trying to cope with this new pernicious gas. He 
analysed the effects and ingeniously contrived antidotes 
to relieve the sufferings of the men. The gas left a 
distinct odour of mustard in the air, it contaminated the 
ground and even penetrated the clothing; the men were 
not immunized merely by,vearing their gas helmets. It 
made them vomit and remove their masks. Swellings, 
blisters and blindness resulted. Another atrocity had 
been perpetrated, but, like all the others, it had little 
bearing on the ultimate results. 
The night following this discouraging incident, the 
Battalion relieved a battalion of the 18th Durham Light 
Infantry in the front line opposite l\iéricourt and in 
approximately the same trenches that they held in June. 
The line had not altered appreciably since the middle of 
....c\.pril. It was intended, however, that this line should 
move forward and the proposed attack on the l\Iéricourt- 
Sallaumines Ridge was definitely planned. \Yhen it was 
the Battalion's turn to be relieved, they closed over to the 
right into support trenches on the front which it was 
expected they would eventually attack. They were 
withdra,vn on the 17th and lnoved to Camb]igneul in the 
back area. The tour had been a normal one, with very 
few casualties, apart froln those caused by gas. Con- 





VIMY RIDGE 


trary to their expectations, it was the last time they sa". 
that part of the front. 
They spent three \veeks at Cambligneul, training for 
the l\léricourt attack, which was destined to be aban- 
doned. . They worked to a carefully prepared syllabus of 
training, practising over taped trenches as thoroughly as 
they had done prior to Vimy. During this training there 
were several cases of diphtheria developed and the Bat- 
talion was in quarantine froln October 6th to 14th. On 
October lOth the Battalion was warned to "assume mobile 
conditions" and the tactics in training \vere altered to 
conform to those used on the Somme. Five days later 
they turned their backs on the Yimy sector and started 
north to Flanders.

CHAPTER VI 


PASSCHENDAELE 


S I:KCE the Somme the French and British had been 
continuing a vigorous offensive. As soon as the 
effects of one blo\v began to wane another was 
struck on a different front. 'Yhen the Battle of 
Arras neared a deadlock the British threw their 
weight into another huge onslaught in Flanders. This 
offensive was designed to keep the enemy on the defensive, 
engage reserves, which ,vere continuously increasing as 
a result of the Russian collapse, and to wrest from the 
Germans the high ground overlooking Y pres and to relieve 
that sorely tried bulwark, so long nlenaced. 
This new offensive in Flanders became the Battles 
of Y pres, 1917. Three armies were employed; the First 
French Army on the north, the Fifth British Army in the 
centre, and on the south the Second British Army. The 
first of the attacks was launched at the end of July, the 
second large attack took place on August 16th and the 
third on Septeillber 20th ,vhen the British, although 
suffering heavy losses, captured the high ground across 
the l\Ienin Road. In October there were several attacks. 
On October 4th, 9th and 12th, the British and Anzacs 
advanced slo\vly under enormous difficulties. The line 
was established along the main ridge overlooking Y pres 
some 1,000 yards east of the old line occupied by the 4th 
C.l\l. R. on June 2nd, 1916. But Passchendaele was 
still in the hands of the enemy. 
After the ,yettest .A.ugust in lllany 
years and an unusu- 
ally damp SepteJllber it had been expected that October 
would be more favourable, but the rain continued to fall, 
turning the country into a bog. l\Iud had been encoun- 
tered in eyery previous 9ffensive, but it ,vas as nothing 
compared to this. Troops could be moved only on

specially made tracks floating on a sea of mud. To 
venture off them ,vas to risk drowning in the mire; the 
sodden ground was so churned by shell-fire that it became 
a batter with the consistence of fresh mortar. Its only 
virtue ,vas in diminishing the effectiyeness of shell-fire 
and undoubtedly reducing the number of casualties. The 
Allies encountered a ne'\v form of defence in the concrete 
"Pill-boxes" which ,vere substantially constructed con- 
crete strong points heavily armed and lnanned by picked 
troops. They necessitated the development of ne,v 
tactics and were a strong factor in the retarding of the 
offensive. ::\Iud, Pill-boxes and casualties ,vere the out- 
standing things in this bitter offensive. 
The attack on Lens for ,vhich the Canadian Corps had 
been preparing ,vas postponed on October 4th and the 
Canadian Corps ordered north into the fight for Passchen- 
daele under General Plumer of the Second Army. On 
October 15th, 1917, the Battalion, less "B" Company, 
which followed in the evening, moved off at 6.30 a.m. 
from Cambligneul to Savy, ,vhere they entrained at 
10.30 a.m., and proceeded north by train through Haze- 
brouck to Caestre, ,,
here they detrained and marched to 
the Koorten Loop area, on the border of Belgium. The 
Battalion billeted in a picturesque valley of fanns, and 
had ideal weather ,vhich made the route-marches and 
physical training a less monotonous task. Officers 'who 
had been with the Regiment in this part of the country 
in the earlier days revisited some of their old haunts in the 
neighbouring to,vns of Steen YO or de, Cassel and Hazebrouck. 
This halt ,vas only temporary. On the 21st the Bat- 
talion moved again, going by train from Caestre to the 
heart of ruined Y pres. l\lany of the lnen had never 
been in Flanders; for them it was a thrilling experience 
to be standing amidst the wreckage of the town the 
very name of ,vhich ,vas synon)
mous ,yith all that ,vas 
terri(ying. The fact that troops detrained 'within the 
relnnants of this eerie city meant that the Gernlans 
had been pushed back a considerable distance and that, 
as in all offensives, things wen
 done behind the lines 
'which would never be drealned of during ordinary times.

Oct. It ,vas still a very unwholesome place, and a new menace, 
1917 even more harro,ving than shelling, was gathering momen- 
tum and making life in the to\vns behind the lines less 
safe and less bearable. This new form of terrorism was 
bombing. Organized aerial raids at night became a lllost 
demoralizing factor, darkness no longer bringing conso- 
lation. Every night, and especially on moonlight nights, 
the drone of enemy planes could be heard as they crossed 
overhead. Their great height gaye the feeling that they 
were hovering directly above, searching out and preying 
on the individual. It '\-vas hard to remove the delusion 
that one ,vas being singled out by an invisible demon in 
the sky. Few things 'were more trying to the morale. 
As soon as the men had detrained and formed up, they 
marched out of the town about two miles north-east 
through the celebrated village of S1. Jean to \vhere the 
hamlet "'Ïeltje used to be. It \vas daytime when they 
passed Salyation Corner to their new billets and they saw 
again the activity that goes with a great battle. It 
reminded them somewhat of the Somme, it was about 
the same time of the year, the 'weather was similar and 
as the Somme, so at Passchendaele the offensive had been 
in progress for some months \vhen the Battalion arrived. 
The one great difference between the two places was the 
country over which they were fighting. They were now in 
the lo\vlands of Flanders, the grolU1d rarely being more than 
thirty feet above the sea. Agai:r:t they \vere tossed into 
the maelstrom of a huge offensive. They became part 
of the great whirlpool of traffic. The rapidly changing 
scenery, the movement, the animation gave a thrill and 
fascination only experienced in these colossal combats. 
The roads leading to and from Y pres were jammed with 
all kinds of vehicles, from bicycles to gigantic caterpillar- 
dra\vn ho\vitzers. The steady stream of men and animals 
never ceased; field-kitchens, limbers, G.S. waggons and 
pack-ponies nose-to-tail made an endless chain. Troops 
from every quarter of the globe passed and repassed; 
black and yellow labour-corps \vorked unnoticed in the 
cosmopolitan medley of fighting and non-combatant 
troops. 



P ASSCHEKDAELE 


Late in the afternoon they arrived in the area to which 
they were allotted, and after considerable delay were 
accornmodated in tents and bivouacs; some went into a 
tunnel at 'Vieltje. It was only a temporary stopping 
place in the move forward and the majority made them- 
selves as comfortable as possible in an open field. The 
Transport foIlo"Ted and parked in an open space on the 
northerJy edge of Y pres. As soon as darkness fell the 
enemy's aeroplanes were heard in the sky. One came 
just at dark and ße\v over sorne neighbouring units and 
dropped bombs. Lieutenant N. V . Waddell and Sergeant 
Norris, \vho were visiting the 43rd Battalion at the time, 
were \vounded. 
The foIlo\ving day, October 22nd, Ùl:
 Battalion left 
'YieItje and moved fonvard to the Reserve area lin 
California Trench. It relieved the 2nd Otago and 2nd 
Auckland Regiments of the New Zealand Division, 
which had been terribly cut up \vith the Anzac Corps in 
their efforts to reach Passchendaele. The New Zealanders 
had lost a great many officers and men and were 
anxious to leave the area as quickly as possible but they 
did not hand -over in any prefunctory manner, on the 
contrary, they went to the greatest pains to explain the 
situation and to define the position they were evacuating. 
This \vas one of the fe\v occasions that the Battalion had 
a liaison with sister Dominion troops and it \vas a most 
pleasant one. 
The next day the Battalion moved into support and 
on October 24th relieved the 1st C. 1\1. R. in the front 
line. This \vas one of the worst reliefs the Battalion ever 
experienced. Carried out at night in a heavy rain, it 
\vas ahnost impossible to make any headway through the 
sticky lllud; the guides lost their way in the trackless 
swamp and it was 5.00 a.m. before the relief was com- 
pleted. Rations arrived in their mysterious way but the 
"Tater-carriers had not navigated this endless sea. As 
all drinking water had to be carried up in petrol-tins it 
became exceedingly precious by the time it reached the 
front line. 
During this trying relief and immediately prior to it

the Battalion had several casualites. It lost two very 
popular and valuable officers; Captain J. R. ',",oods and 
Lieutenant J. D. CalnpbelI, who were in the support line 
on the night of the 24-25th when their dug-out received 
a direct hit, \vere both killed. 
After the relief was completed on the 25th, the weather 
cleared and the sun came out, giving the men a chance to 
dry their \vet and muddy uniforms. There \vas sufficient 
visibility to allo\v them to see for the first time the 
ground over \vhich they \vere to attack on the morrow. 
The Divisional front ran from the south of ''''' allemolen 
to 'Yolf Farm bending back to Peter Pan and thence to 
Fleet Cottage and across the road to the Ra vebeek, 
\vhich in ordinary years was an innocent rivulet but at 
this abnormal tilne had burst its boundaries and inun- 
dated the lnarshy ground on either side. The Battalion 
occupied a line which ran from the cemetery of the little 
halnlet of \Vallelnolen on the left to the south of Wolf 
Farm, half way to Peter Pan on the right. On the right 
front was 'V olf Copse and Bellevue Spur, a strongly held 
position about five hundred yards up the slope leading 
to Passchendaele ,vhich was twenty feet higher and 
approximately twenty-five-hundred yards awa..,v. Bat- 
talion Headquarters ,vas located in Kronprinz Farm six 
hundred yards in the rear of the front line. 'Vhile the 
Battalion \vas ahnost due ,vest of Passchendaele its front 
faced north-east of the village. This situation arose 
because of the enlargelnent of the Y pres Salient. The 
attack on Passchendaele started fronl the old Salient. 
As it gre,v and its radii became longer the line consequently 
becanle straighter, its direction sho,ving that it emanated 
frolll the axis at Ypres. 
At this point it may be well to explain the intentions 
of the Higher Command and in a very general way give 
the objectives and dispositions of the various units before 
recounting \vhat happened to the Battalion on the 26th 
when it joined in the general attack. The offensive 
opened on July 31st and since that time there had been 
seven general attacks. The last took place on October 12th. 
On October 21st the Battalion learned that the Canadian 



P ASSCHEXDAELE 


Corps was to undertake operations for the capture of 
Passchendaele in conjunction with the 1st Anzac Corps 
on the right, and the 5th Army on the left, the Anzacs and 
Canadians coming under General Sir H.Plumer, G.C.l\I.G., 
of the Second Army. The operation was to be in three 
stages, with a few days interval following each stage; the 
dates ,vere October 26th, October 30th and NoveInber 9th. 
The Third and Fourth Canadian Divisions were to com- 
plete the first and second stages; and the 1st and 2nd 
Divisions the third and last stage ,vhich included the 
capture of Passchendaele village and the main Ridge. 
This they did. On October 26th the Third Division had 
the Fourth Division on its right and the 63rd Division 
of the Fifth Army, better kno'wn as the Royal Naval 
Division, on its left. The 8th and 9th Brigades entered 
the first attack. The latter had a t\VO battalion frontage, 
using the 43rd and 58th, while the 8th had one Battalion 
frontage, using the 4th C. 1\1. R. Once again the bat- 
talion was on the extreme left of the Canadian Corps. 
The Royal Naval Division was on the left of the Battalion 
and the 43rd Battalion of the 9th Brigade on its right. 
Colonel Patterson issued orders for two companies to 
assemble before zero hour in front of the line and t,vo 
companies behind, and as soon as they moved forward 
their positions were to be taken by the 1st C. 1\1. R., to 
be used, if necessary, to reinforce the attacking troops. 
The 2nd C. 1\1. R. Battalion was in support and the 5th 
C. 1\;1. R. in Reserve and to be used in the second stage 
on October 30th. This, roughly, ,,-as the disposition of 
the troops engaged on the day ,vhich the Battalion 
attacked. 
In the darkness of the early morning of October 26th, 
1917, the companies assembled in their theoretical 
positions. T,vo cOInpanies moved out in front and hvo 
companies remained en échelon behind theIne They 
carried out these difficult manæuvres without interference 
froln the enemy. Heavy clouds threatened rain, it ,vas 
difficult to see, there were few landmarks and as the 
officers and nlcn had been in the line only one day they 
had very little opportunity to orient themselves and to

determine their objectives. To illustrate the difficulties 
of maintaining a sense of location, the guides who brought 
in the Battalion got lost on several occasions. As soon 
as the bath-mat track 'was left all was hopeless. Lieuten- 
ant ,Yo J. Nesbitt, 'who left Battalion Headquarters 
about lnidnight to join his company which he was leading 
into action at 5.40 a.ln. got lost although he had less 
than 1,000 yards to go. T"wice he found himself behind 
the enemy's lines and on both occasions ,vas challenged 
by a German but managed to escape; finally, after floun- 
dering around in the mud all night ahnost exhausted he 
located his company just before zero-hour. Later in the 
day, during the attack, he had a miraculous escape; 
seeing a German about to shoot at him, he dived forward 
for the protection of a shell-hole but his flight was in the 
same plane as the trajectory of the bullet which ploughed 
a furro\v dO'wn his back parallel to his spine ,vithout 
killing hiln. 
All companies were to adopt the formation of one 
platoon extended in line of sections in file and two pla- 
toons in file on either flank. In the confusion of battle 
it was impossible to retain a definite formation and as in 
other sho\vs such regularity soon collapsed, the troops 
pushing for'ward as best they could. " C" Company 
under Lieutenant Nesbitt assembled on the left seventy- 
five yards in advance of "B" Company commanded by 
l\Iajor 1\1. :1\;1. I1art, l\I.C., and "C" Company under 
Captain ,Yo R. 1\fuirhead took up a similar position on 
the right supported by "A" Company under lVIajor H. 
A. Scott. 
"lien the Battalion started to assemble, a company of 
the 1st C.l\I. R. under l\Iajor Green\vood occupied the 
reserve trenches, as soon as they were vacated, and at 
zero-hour moved into the front line. Two Vickers guns 
of the 9th l\Iachine Gun Company under Lieutenant 
Searles were attached to "A" Company; "D" Company 
had one section detailed to it too, as a guard to cover the 
pill-boxes on the right. Four Vickers sniping-guns were 
to go forward in rear of the attacking troops \vith a roving 
cornmission to take on ,vhatever targets presented them-

selves. Each man was in fighting kit with two hundred- 
and-t,venty rounds of ammunition. Unfortunately, 
drinking water, ,vhich ,vas badly needed, never reached 
the front line and the men went into action with empty 
water-bottles. 
At zero-hour, 5.40 a.m. October 26th, one-hundred- 
. and eighty IS-pounders, sixty 4.5-IIowitzers and about 
one-hundred-and-hventy-five Heavies of various descrip- 
tions opened over the Divisional front. Trench mortars 
concentrated on the wire which was not very formidable, 
and on the pill-boxes which were almost immune. A 
gentle rain began to fall and the first of the assaulting 
troops ,vent for,vard in a drizzle in the hazy dawn. The 
machine-gunners followed and in fifteen minutes the 
second ,vave started. The enemy retaliated 'with a 
hea vy barrage and machine-gun fire inflicting hea vy 
casualties. Also there ,vas a strenuous shelling with 
5.9's but their effect was appreciably reduced by the sodden 
soil. Therein lay the mud's only virtue. The men 
moved slowly across the slilne around the brimming 
craters, over and through entanglements until they were 
forced to take cover in freshly-made shell-holes. 
The enemy's line of defence wa" not a series of uniform 
trenches to be taken and mopped up. Instead there 
,vere isolated trenches and strong-points dotted here and 
there. The greatest obstacles were the pill-boxes. They 
were manned by picked resistance-troops who fought 
with courage and resolution, keeping their rifles and 
machine-guns in action until bombed or bayoneted. 
Only by collective bravery and individual acts of gallantry 
,vere these obstacles removed. Contrary to popular 
belief the majority of pill-boxes were not loop-holed 
fortresses from which the defenders fought. They were 
square rooms of reinforced-concrete \vith walls and roof 
about five feet thick with one door in the rear leading 
into a fire-trench. Their ,valls ,vere too thick to allo\v 
a field of fire through ports. During a bombardment 
and when not in action the garrison gained shelter ,vithin 
but as soon as an attack was launched the occupants 
manned the fire-trench ,vhich ran behind and extended

on either side of the pill-box. They took the place of 
deep dug-outs ,vhich ,vere impracticable in such a lo,v- 
lying country, and ,vere good rallying points giving 
moral support to the defenders. They ,vere formidable, 
but with one weakness, their range of fire was limited, 
and unless covered by other pill-boxes on the flanks the 
blind points in the range of fire made it possible for 
individual attackers to cra\vl up under cover and bomb 
the garrison behind. This explains many of the indi- 
vidual acts of heroism in capturing or demolishing a crew 
defending a pill-box 
The attacking troops \vere forced to move very slowly. 
In two hours they progressed only 500 yards. The sup- 
porting companies succeeded in reaching the intennediate 
objective and one platoon managed to push up to 'Yood- 
land Plantation The task was entirely different from 
that of Vimy \'vhere the artillery had obliterated all 
opposition. Here the enemy had to be fought step by 
step across the open. 
By 10.00 a.m. the Battalion had made a deep advance 
and had outstripped the battalions on its flanks. On the 
right the 43rd Battalion had gained a footing on Bellevue 
Spur, but ,vere being driven off by the devastating fire, 
and further exposed the right flank of the 4th C. :\1. R. 
At 10.30 a.m. the situation ,vas critical and one COlnpany 
of the 52nd Battalion ,vhich ,vas in reserve, was sent in 
to support the weakened 43rd. At noon, "A" Company 
of the 52nd under Lieutenant C. P. O'Kelly, l\I.C., 
successfully attacked the enemy's flank between the 4th 
C. 1\1. R. and the 43rd. lIe was follo\ved by the COln- 
manding Officer of the 52nd., Lieut.-Colonel 'V. ,Yo 
Foster, D. S. 0., "Tith his "B" COlnpany both going 
fonvard and seizing the Spur. 1\Iany of the Battalion 
were thrilled by the sight of these bvo officers leading 
their men across the open in the thick of the fight and 
accomplishing the in1possible. The 4th C. 1\1. R. in 
maintaining its isolated position played an important 
part in making possible the successful attack b
T the 
gallant 52nd Battalion. And as General Lipsett said 
in his farewell address to the Battalion in September 



P ASSCHENDAELE 


1918, "At Passchendaele you made the hole through ,vhich 
the 9th Brigade ,vas able to pass through and capture 
Bellevue Spur." 
The pressure ,vas relieved on "A" Company ,vhich was 
tenaciously holding its gains on the right flank. Lieu- 
tenant R. H. 'Yarne was in comlnand ,vith a few survivors. 
The con1pany commander, l\Iajor Scott had been killed, 
also Lieutenant D. C. Silns, and Lieutenant J. R. 1\lyers 
had been wounded. " D" COlnpany which had gone 
ahead of "...\" Company ,vas comlnanded by Lieutenant 
T. J. Rutherford, the only officer of the company left. 
Captain :11uirhead had been killed; Lieutenant A.. 'V. 
Deacon and Lieutenant H. C. 
loore, ,younded. By 2.80 
p.ln. Lieutenant 'Yarne reported that a junction had been 
effected with the 52nd Battalion and that a trench had 
been dug and the line consolidated. He and Lieutenant 
Deacon were awarded the 1\1. C. 
On the left the conditions ,vere silnilar. "C" Company 
struggled against a most gruelling opposition, pushing 
forward until the effectiveness of the force was reduced by 
casualties. _\ll the officers were hit; Lieutenant V. Eaton 
and Lieutenant Shepherd ,vere killed, and the COlnpany 
commander Lieutenant Nesbitt and Lieutenant 'Yyatt 
wounded. l\lajor Hart passed on with his cOlnpany gath- 
ering in the remnants of "C" COlnpany ,vhich had no 
officers. He sent a message by runner to Colonel Patter- 
son to send reinforcements to cover the left flank because 
the A.nson Battalion of the Royal Naval Division had not 
been able to keep in touch and the left flank ,vas" in the 
air." It ,vas learned later that the sailors had lost all 
their officers and \vere trying to overcome insurlnountable 
odds under a Sgt.-Major. They had side-slipped to the 
left leaving a gap. In response to l\Iajor Hart's request 
Colonell)atterson sent Lieutenant _\. Clarke and Lieuten- 
ant L. G. }[ills to report on the situation; both of these 
officers had several unpleasant excursions to the front 
line froln Headquarters to get inforlnation. Eventually 
platoons of the 1st C. 1\1. It. were sent fonvard. :\lajor 
Ilart swung his left flank to cover his position and at 
8.80 a.m. started to dig-in and consolidate. He ,vas in

touch with the companies on his right and the ne\v line 
was completed. Both flanks, ho\vever, \vere exposed 
until the left flank ,vas joined up and the 43rd and 52nd 
Battalio
s had secured Belle'vue Spur. The companies 
maintained their forward position against terrific shelling 
and small-arm fire until the flanks \vere secured about 
2.30 p.m. and the line consolidated. 
At 11.30 a.m. companies of the 1st C. 1\1. R. Battalion 
had reported at Bãttalion Headquarters. Captain Regan 
moved his "D" Company into the old support line and 
" A" Company under 
lajor l\laxfield took over the old 
front line allowing 1\lajor Greenwood to send forward the 
remainder of his company to the new front line. 
Iajor 
l\Iaxfield got into touch ,vith the Hood Battalion of the 
Royal Naval Division and helped to improve the left 
flank. The three companies of the 1st C. 1\1. R. were 
relieved in the line shortly after dusk by three companies 
of the 2nd C. 1\1. R. Battalion. 
By the Iniddle of the afternoon the ,vhole Divisional 
front and its flanks ,vere established. The Battalion 
remained in the position it had reached in the morning. 
These positions were signalled to contact-aeroplanes by 
waving helmets, since it was impossible to light the water- 
soaked flares. By this time the battle seemed to be over 
for both sides. There was spasmodic shelling during the 
remainder of the day, and the line settled do,vn ready for 
counter-attacks ,vhich ,vere anticipated. At dusk out- 
posts were established fifty yards apart and the same 
distance in front of the line. At 10.00 p.m. one of the 
posts on the left reported a body of troops gathering in the 
vicinity of Source Trench five hundred yards to the east 
of 'Yallemolen and on the Battalion's immediate left front. 
Cool and calculating, l\Iajor Hart's men prepared to 
receive them. Lewis guns ,vere trained on thenl and the 
men ordered to stand fast until the party ,vas within 
one hundred yards, then the command to fire was given. 
Shooting thus over ra.nged rifle-sights reselnbled mus- 
ketry drill and the early training on the rifle-ranges. 
This unusual reception so completely disorganized the 
enemy that they withdre,v leaving some dead and

wounded. Sergeant Harding took out a patrol of ten 
men and brought back two prisoners of the 73rd German 
Regiment. The rest of the night was fairly quiet. 
It is impossible to speak too highly of l\lajor 1\1. 1\1. 
Hart's part in this battle. He 'was recommended for 
the D. S. 0., and received a Bar to his M. C. In the 
words of the official recommendation, "he set an example 
of resourcefulness and presence of mind \vhich w'as 
undoubtedly in a large degree responsible for the success 
of the operation." Lieutenant B. D. Poyser, also of 
"B" Company, ably assisted l\Iajor Hart and \vas 
awarded the :\1. C. 
The Battalion paid heavily for its part in the first stage 
of the capture of Passchendaele; an enormous sacrifice for 
such little ground gained. There were seventeen casualties 
among the officers; eight were killed and nine wounded. 
There 'were only four untouched who \vere part of the 
attacking troops and some of them had most uncanny 
escapes. Three hundred and four other ranks ,vere 
killed, \vounded or missing, or evacuated suffering from 
exposure. The fe\v hours of fighting accounted for half 
the total strength of officers and a third of all the men. 
Again the Battalion gave more than its share in man 
po\ver. 
Six officers and fifteen N. C. O.'s and men 'were decor- 
ated for various acts of devotion to duty. Ten men 
\vere awarded the D. C.

mended by the Commanding Officer for the

received the D. C. 1\1.; six others received the 1\1. l\I. 
This ,vas so unusual that it is mentioned here to empha- 
size the ,vonderful ,vork done by the N. C. 0' s and men 
and to show how much their efforts were appreciated 
by the Corps. It was also rare to be given so many 
D. C. 1\1.'s for one action, carrying as they do a gratuity. 
On the other hand there were those ,vho were recom- 
mended, but did not receive Rwards, and, as always, 
courageous deeds went unnoticed or passed into oblivion

Empire can besto,v-the 'Tictoria Cross. Private T. 'V. 
Holmes, a frail, delicate youth ,vith a contagious smile 
was recolnmended for and received this coveted a,vard. 
The action for \vhich he 'vas recommended was officially 
\vorded as follo,vs: 


For great valour and bravery during the action of October 26th, 
1917, near Passchendaele. When his Company was within fifty yards 
of a pill-box and was held up and forced to take cover by two rnachine- 
guns mounted nearby and by rifle fire, he, on his own initiative, and 
single-handed, ran forward and threw a bomb, killing the crew and put- 
ting the guns out of action. He then returned to his companions, 
secured another bomb and again under heavy fire ran forward alone 
and threw the bomb into the entrance causing the nineteen occupants 
to surrender. 


'Yhile this concise description is sufficient for the tilne, 
disposition and ultimate effect of the deed, it should be 
amplified by personal reminiscences of the men who sa \v 
it. " A" Company, which had followed "D" COlnpany 
into the attack on the right, had overtaken the leading 
Company and both 'were interlningled and advancing 
together when held up by a pill-box lnanned by two 
machine-gun crews and reinforced by SOlne twenty lnen 
within the pill-box. Not only was half the Battalion held 
up but also part of the 9th Brigade on the right. '''''hi Ie 
the men w'ere taking cover in shell holes, Private Holmes, 
on his own initiative, before those around him real- 
ized what he was about to do rushed fonvard and tossed 
a bomb so accurately into the trench of the lnachine- 
gun crew that they and their guns \vere put out of 
action. He then returned to his companions for lnore 
bombs, which by this time \vere getting scarce, but he 
succeeded in getting one from Private Dunphy. ,.'\.gain 
he dashed fonvard, this time going directly up to the 
pill-box and threw his bomb into the entrance, ,vhere 
it exploded; those \yho ,vere not killed or ,younded 
came out and surrendered. l\Iajor Scott s::nv Private 
Holmes go forward but did not know ,vho he ,vas. He 
sent Private Ha,,
ley to find out Private Holmes's name 
so that he could recommend him for his bravery, but 
before he got back \vith the information, l\Iajor Scott was 
killed. Fortunately there were others "rho sa,v him and 
who also ,vere anxious to have his courageous feat

recognized. This ,vas the Battalion's only V. C. There 
were men ,vho received their early training \vith the 
Battalion or ,vere seconded for duty with other units 
who reflected credit on the Battalion. Of the many 
examples the most outstanding was Corporal G. T. 
Lyall, \vho was granted a commission and \von the 'T. C. 
,vith the I02nd Battalion C. E. F. 
There \vere many others who did more than their Illere 
duty, but none would begrudge another mention of the 
Chaplain, Captain 'V. H. Davis. .A.s at Vimy and every 
other action, so at Passchendaele this Padre exceeded 
his duty by exposing himself unnecessarily. He ,vent 
forward with the men, Illustering and organizing a 
party of stretcher-bearers, gaining the admiration of 
all the combatants by walking about in the open looking 
for wounded, apparently oblivious of his danger. It was a 
miracle that he lived to enter another action. His 
coolness and unselfish thoughtfulness for the welfare of 
others gained for him a very ,varm spot in the hearts of 
all the men. One officer, "who saw the Padre laboriously 
coming toward him through a do,ynpour of "crumps," 
asked him \vhat he was doing ,valking around in the 
open; his reply had its usual candour: "I was getting 
anxious about you." During the afternoon of the 26th 
he so successfully controlled the stretcher-bearers and 
set such a wonderful example that practically all the 
wounded were collected. 
One incident ,vhich illustrates the curious turn of 
eyents of that day is not recorded in the Diary, but has 
been gleaned from ,vitnesses. It sho,vs how rapidly a 
situation could alter and thro,vs some light on the curious 
psychology of the real combatants. Late in the after- 
noon by common, uncomIllunicated consent, without 
notification or sanction, both sides suddenly decided on a 
temporary armistice to look after their wounded and dead. 
It was one of those spontaneous things, arranged without 
agreement. It just happened. It suited both sides. 
Some think that the Gern1ans 'vere probably awed by the 
unusual sight of Padre Davis with such a large party 
nonchalantly walking about and as soon as they realized

w'hat he ,vas doing, decided to do likc\vise. Suddenly 
large numbers of Germans got out of their trenches and 
commenced to search for their ,vounded. The idea was 
mutual. 'Yhen the Germans found a ,younded Canadian 
they would mark his position by sticking his rifle in the 
mud and placing his helmet on it; or carry hiln to a pill-box 
which soon became a clearing station where the troops of 
both sides foregathered and exchanged the wounded. 
Since sunrise the fighting had been bitter; each side trying 
to create as much havoc as possible among the men ,vhom 
they were now trying to succour. It was a rational para- 
dox for the men in the line. But the unofficial truce did 
not last long. Some young, enthusiastic for,vard-observ- 
ing officer of the gunners could not resist reporting the 
existence of so many targets and soon the guns opened on 
th
 weary missionaries who had to postpone their res- 
cUIng. 
l\Iany of the ,vounded ,vho have since recovered are 
indebted to the care and skill of the l\ledical Officer 
l\Ia,jor H. C. Davis. On one occasion a shell burst 
beside the Dressing Station killing and wounding twelve 
of the stretcher-bearers and patients. "The Davis's" 
were a valuable combination to the Battalion; one getting 
the 'wounded rapidly to the Field Dressing Station and 
the other at great personal risk evacuating them to 
hospital. As a result of the courage and determination 
of these two officers the area ,vas cleared of all ,vounded 
before handing over to the relieving battalion on the 
following day. For their great work in this battle they 
both received the 1\1. C. 
The Battalion took 175 un,vounded and Ì\venty-five 
,younded prisoners in the one day's fighting. T,vo 
officers ,vere among thenl. Seven heavy and five light 
machine-guns ,vere captured. Apart from the success 
which these figures infer, they indicate the magnitude of 
the opposition. 
The next day ,vas cOlnparatively quiet. There was 
considerable shelling but no other activity on the part of 
the enemy. In the early morning at sunrise, Lance- 
Corporal Spillsbury and four men were patrolling the 



P ASSCHEXDAELE 


front and brought in hvo prisoners 'who had lost their way. 
During the day four. un,vounded and sixteen ,vounded 
prisoners ,vere sent back. X Ulnerous stretcher parties 
'were engaged all day bringing in the ,vounded ,vho 
remained. _\.t 9.00 p.m. the Battalion ,vas relieved by 
the 2nd C. ),1. R. Battalion, moving back to the inter- 
mediate support trenches ,yith Battalion Headquarters 
at Capricorn Keep. In spite of the severe losses, the 
Battalion handed over a strong and ,veIl-constructed 
position. 
Field :\Iarshal Sir Douglas Haig, on October 27th, 
sent the follo,ving telegram to General Plulner, com- 
manding the Second Army: 


The success gained by your troops yesterday under such conditions 
is deserving of the highest praise. While all the troops did well and 
contributed materially to the results achieved, the perfonnance of the 
3rd Canadian Division in particular was remarkably fine. The ground 
gained is of high importqnce and I congratulate you and all under you 
on the results of the great effort made. 
The Battalion remained at Capricorn Keep for a day 
and then moved back to California trench on the 29th 
and ,vere settled in the saIne area in support as on October 
22nd. Battalion Headquarters ,vere again in Pommern 
Castle. They relnained there on the 30th, the day 
chosen for the second stage of the attack on Passchen- 
daele. The Battalion supplied parties to assist in remov- 
ing the "rounded from the forward area to the 9th Can- 
adian Field ...\mbulance, and to carry munitions and 
supplies to the forward area. 
The attack on the 30th ,vas very similar to that of the 
20th. The 8th Brigade had the same frontage, with the 
5th C. 
l. R. going into the attack. On the left of that 
Battalion the Artists' Rifles of the 63rd Ilnperial Division 
replaced the Hood Battalion. On the right were the 
49th Battalion and the P. P. C. L. I. of the 7th Brigade 
,vhich had relieved the 9th Brigade. The advance ,vas 
about the same distance as on the 26th under equal diffi- 
culties. These regiments like others in the Canadian 
Corps lnaintained their shining reputation as assault 
troops. The Third and Fourth Divisions captured, at 
great sacrifice, the high ground fro In ,vhich the

Second Divisions on N' ovember 6th took Passchendaele 
and its famous ridge. 
On October the 31st the Battalion moved to Ta
r Camp. 
The men left California Trench at 8.30 a.m. and marched 
to the Transport Lines where they picked up their packs 
'which had been left before going into the line. They 
marched back ÏDto Ypres and entrained at 11.45 a.ln. for 
Abeele on the Belgian border, half-way bet,veen Pop- 
eringhe and Steenvoorde. The Transport marched back 
by Y pres, Poperinghe and Hillehoek. Tay Camp, the 
destination, 'was just north of Hillehoek and as near 
Poperinghe as Abeele but for some reason they detrained 
at the latter and marched back. The Camp 'was pitched 
in the same fields where the 4th C. 1\1. R. had practised 
for the Somme in the previous year. The Battalion went 
into tents which ,vere anything but comforting shelter 
when night bombing was so popular; enemy aircraft was 
particularly active around Poperinghe and the strictest 
care was exercised to avoid identification at night. No 
lights were allowed to be exposed which, in tents, Ineant 
that darkness prevailed after night fall. For troops in 
rest after such recent experiences, the nights were dreary 
and uninteresting except for sleep which, with only canvas 
for protection, was anything but tranquil. 
After three days at Tay Calnp they were shifted to 
Shrine Camp, a mile or so west. Reinforcements began 
to arrive and fresh kit was issued; leather and fur jerkins 
were distributed in preparation for the ",
inter. These 
wind-breaking, ill-fitting jackets of goat-skin, were warm 
but not smart. 1\Iost of them had been already cam- 
paigning on other backs. \Yhile at Shrine Camp l\Iajor- 
General Lipsett and Brigadier-General Ehnsley visited 
the Camp; the Divisional Commander addressing the 
Battalion complimented them on their behaviour on 
October 26th. He said in part: 


General Elmsley, Colonel Patterson, Officers, N. C. 0.'8 and men 
of the 4th C. M. R. Battalion; I wish to thank you very much for the 
work you have done. Previous to our attack two Divisions had tried 
without success to take the position which we secured. This is the 
first time, as far as I know, that any particular body of troops have 
been specially mentioned by the Commander-in-Chief.

On Xovember 7th the Battalion ,vas moved to the 
forward area. The men had had only one 'week of rest 
and ,yere still ,yorn out, but the need ,vas urgent and they 
'\vere ordered to Saville Camp near St. Jean, north-east of 
Ypres. They were there five days providing large work- 
ing parties, under the orders of the C. R. E. of the First 
Division, building roads up to Passchendaele and working 
at Spree Dump, Kansas Cross and Abraham Heights. 
They ,vere back in the wet and the filth of that disagree- 
able area doing disagreeable work; most of the time 
labouring under shell fire, soaking ,vet and ,vith no chance 
to dry their clothes at night because of the prohibition 
against fires and lights. Ho,yever, this boredom did not 
last long. On the 13th they were ordered to the rear and 
went back to Camp 30 at Brandhoek just south of 
Poperinghe. 
The Battalion never returned to Passchendaele or Ypres. 
They left these historic places forever, without regrets. 
Two of their greatest sacrifices had been made on this 
soil. Their first baptism was received there, and now 
they had wiped off an old score. The ne'\ver blood had 
retaliated for the older, Passchendaele was a rebuke for 
Sanctuary'Vood. They left behind a battalion's strength 
in the soil of Belgium, their share in the price that ,vas 
paid to protect the Channel Ports.

CHAPTER VII 


DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 


A FTER Passchendaele, with the exception of an 
attack by the Third Army at Cambrai in Nov- 
ember, 1917, the British ceased their offensive 
tactics and settled down for the winter to 
prepare their defences for the German drive 
which followed in the Spring, 'when the Central Powers, 
freed from their Eastern fronts, threw their consoli- 
dated weight against the Allies. It ,vas not until 
.August, 1918, after parrying the last thrust ü'f the 
Germans, that the British were able to resume the 
offensive. During this hiatus the Canadian Corps re- 
occupied the Vimy Sector but was not seriously engaged; 
although, General Currie in his Interim Report on the 
Canadian Corps operations during 1918 said "it was fully 
expected that the German offensive would be directed 
against this (Vimy Sector), the central part of the British 
Front." This fear was entertained because a shallow 
ad vance would paralyse the French collieries, while a 
deeper penetration would threaten the main lateral lines 
of communication. Fortunately, the main attack* did 
not take place there and the Canadians were saved for 
the counter offensive. They formed a part of that 
potential force \vhich lay dormant in a quiet part of 
the line, holding long thinned portions, or training in 
musketry and open-warfare as a unit of those latent 
reserves whose dynamic energy was soon to be used in one 
of the most audacious moves ever attempted in any war. 
To read the regimental account of these times is to 
picture a cheery Battalion in good spirits going in and 


· The Gennan Seventeenth Anny on March 28th "was to capture the deci sive 
heights east and north of Arras and the Sixth Army (the next day) was to pro long 
the attack from about Lens and carry the high ground (Vimy Ridge) in that 
area." (vide Ludendorff). The attack on the 28th failed.

D'CRING THE LAST GERl\IAN OFFENSIVE 91 
out of quiet portiòns of the line with an occasional raid 
and very few casualties. From the records they were 
apparently oblivious of the steady march of serious 
events going On to the south and north of them; the 
only mention in the \Yar Diary of any momentous 
occurrence during this period was an entry on l\Iarch 21st, 
-the first day of the German offensive-that there were 
"rumours of a great enemy offensive to the south." 
The lack of information in the Diary, at this tilne, 
regarding other than very personal details smacks of 
that curious British trait of refusing to take seriously 
the first indications of adverse circumstances. 
The follow
ng summary of events of great moment 
happening on all Fronts will explain the external situ- 
ation which had an indirect bearing on the history of 
the Battali:1n. There was practically a stalemate on 
the 'Vestern Front during the winter of 1917. This was 
not the case on other Fronts; in Kovember the Austrians 
were pressing the Italians on the Piave, Russia had 
completely collapsed and definitely suspended hostilities 
at the beginning of December; at the same time Roumania 
had agreed to an armistice. Britain was the only Allied 
Po\ver having any success and that was in Palestine; 
,Jerusalem was taken on December 10th. This was the 
only bright spot until the Italians stiffened and held. 
February was uneventful. 
In the meantime the Germans had mustered 192 
Divisions and gathered all their forces for a final blow 
against the British and French. On March 21st, 1918, 
they struck at the Third and Fifth Armies, but chiefly 
at the latter which joined the French on the right 
of the British J.Jine and where the enemy hoped to drive 
a wedge and separate the t\VO Armies. In ideal, foggy 
weather they penetrated to considerable depth on the 
Fifth Army front. On this day the Third Canadian 
Division was just south of Lens on the l\Iéricourt-Avion 
sector and only heard the distant shelling. A week later 
the Germans attacked astride the Scarpe between the 
Third and First Armies both of \vhich had Canadian 
Divisions under their commands but which ,vere not

directly engaged in this fighting. This attack in front of 
Arras, to widen the salient to include Vimy Ridge and 
the Lorette Spur, was repulsed. 
On April 14th Marshal Foch was chosen Generalissimo 
and from that time the two Armies interchanged Divis- 
ions to help each other stem the tides which followed. 
On April 9th the Germans attacked the British on the 
Lys, by the 14th Armentières had fallen and the line was 
almost to St. Venant and Ba,illeul; this salient was 
widened subsequently to include Bailleul, Mont Kemmel 
and Passchendaele. The Battalion while in reserve behind 
St. Venant worked on the defences along La Bassée Canal 
but was never involved in the fighting. The Corps 
during this time extended its line to relieve Imperial 
Divisions, and was holding from Lens south 85,000 yards 
or approximately one-fifth of the total British Front. 
Its line was st.retched almost to the breaking point, 
with huge salients on either flank and "although during 
this period it did not have to repulse any German 
attacks, it nevertheless played a part worthy of its 
strength" by incessantly harrassing the enemy wh:) gave 
"many indications of nervous uncertainty". 
The attack in the north had onlv been checked when 
a third colossal drive took place on:- l\lay 
7th, this time 
against the French IX Corps when the Germans C!lp- 
tured Chemin-des-D
mes and Soissons, and in a few days 
reached the Marne. The British, who had been rein- 
forced by French troops, reciprocated by placing 
five divisions between Chemin-des-Dames and Rheims. 
On July 9th a fourth blow, also against the French, Inet 
with little success, and by the time the next and last 
on July 15th, known as the l\1arne-Champagne drive, 
had been launched, the Allies had the situation in hand 
and their brilliant and unexpected count.er-offensive 
which started on July 18th on the Aisne and Marne 
droye the Germans back. It was followed by the British 
Fourth Army attack on August the 8th which was the 
beginning of the triumphant march of the Last Hundred 
Days. 
The Italians preceded their Allies in turning defeat 



DURING THE LAST GERl\IAN OFFENSIVE 93 
into victory. In the middle of June the Austrians were 
apparently prosecuting a successful drive ,vhen the 
Italians struck back on June 18th and by July 2nd the 
Piave delta was cleared and the Austrians were retiring 
into the barren Dolomites. 
To return to the detailed movements of the Battalion 
when it left Passchendaele; on November 13th, 1917, it 
,vas ordered from Saville Càmp to Camp 30 at Brand- 
hoek, just east of Poperinghe. After five days it moved 
through Haverskerque, to Enquin-Ies-Mines. This 
charming little village nestled on the banks of the 
Laquette River in rolling country, ten kilometres south 
of Aire. It was out of the congested area, few troops 
had been billeted there before and the novelty of their 
presence was reflected in the generosity and hospitality 
of the inhabitants. The Battalion spent a month in this 
congenial environment training and refitting. Leave 
was granted in unusually generous proportions; it was 
welcome and needed. Over one hundred men had not 
been on leave for fifteen months and' over t,vo hundred 
had been a year ,vithout it. The Padre who was just 
as active in billets as in the line established reading and 
recreation rooms in two school houses and in the estam- 
inet near the parish church. 
During the training the Bombers were brought up to 
strength and practised under Corporal Stephenson. 
This N.C.O. showed a keen presence of mind on December 
12th; a man, in thro'wing a live bomb from the practice- 
pit did not clear the parapet and the bomb fell back 
into the pit. The squad tried unsuccessfully to get out 
and Cpl. Stephenson, seeing the confusion, leaped in and 
thre,v out the bomb which exploded in the air. His 
bravery undoubtedly saved his comrades. 
An interesting incident which took place at Enquin- 
les-l\Iines ,vas the voting on the Canadian elections. By 
Act of Parliament every person who enlisted in the 
Canadian Expeditionary Force was entitled to vote on 
the issue of selective conscription as proposed by the 
Union Government. The polling was extended over the 
first two weeks of December to give all the men in the

field an opportunity to yote. The Battalion voted on 
December 3rd. The chief interest at first was not 
political but rather in the uniqueness of voting while 
engaged in a war. During the day the men's interest 
was aroused by Lord Northcliffe's speech which appeared 
in The Daily lrf ail and also by circulars of electioneering 
propaganda, all of which inferred that without conscrip- 
tion the Canadian Corps \vould dwindle away for lack 
of reinforcements and the men then engaged would 
probably have their leave seriously curtailed. This last 
effect was considered to be much too serious by those 
men who had not been on leave for over a year. Sergeant- 
l\lajor Featherstonhaugh canvassed the billets with a 
lantern and ration box which resulted in 645 votes being 
cast. 
On December the 18th the Battalion moved by easy 
stages to the Loos-Hill 70 front. The first night they 
stopped at Cantrainne, a kilometre east of Lillers and on 
the next night at Fouquereuil three kilometres south of 
Bailleul. The following day they were in Les Brébis. It 
was a more peaceful town than in August when the 
Battalion was last there. There were a great number 
of civilians following their daily routine although only 
5,000 yards behind the line. On the 21st the Battalion 
moved into the trenches in front of Loos, and for the 
next month was in and out of the line. The weather 
was fine and cold \vith an occasional snowstorm and 
one or two thaws, never sufficiently protracted to do 
much damage to the trenches. 
Christmas and New Year's were spent in the trenches 
and in the cellars of the ruined village of Lens. And 
while the rations were supplemented by p
rcels from 
home and extra food and drink imported from the 
canteen it \vas not until the men returned to billets at 
l\'lazingarbe that the combined Christmas and New 
Year's dinner was celebrated. 
The following extract from the excellent Diary of 
Major G. F. l\fcFarland gives an intimate and vivid 
picture of the night before Christmas: 



DURING THE LAST GERJ\IAN OFFENSIVE 95 


On Christmas Eve little Clark, the Assistant-Adjutant, who had Jan. 
been left at Transport came up to celebrate the occasion with us. He 1918 
started out about mid-night with the other Clarke from Battalion Head- 
quarters to visit the various companies and wish them the compliments 
of the season. About 2.30 a.m. I went up to the Observation Post to see 
if there was anything stirring. Away over in the Hun lines I could hear 
male voices singing Christmas Carols very melodiously, while from 
nearer at hand sounded the raucous tones of the two Clarkes and their 
measured tread on the duck-boards of the communication trench, as 
they returned to Battalion Headquarters singing: "Don't Blame Me!" 
The contrast was rather ludicrous. Just about dawn one of our snipers 
saw a Hun making his way overland from one trench to the other, evi- 
dently thinking the light was not yet good enough for rifle-fire. Our 
fellow It drilled" him clean, and was heard to remark as he ejected the 
empty shell: "Merry Christmas, Fritz, you . . . . I" 


On January 7th according to Brigade operation orders 
the 4th C.l\i. R. was detailed to raid the enemy's trenches 
with the object of destroying machine-gun emplacements 
and dug-outs, and securing prisoners. A party of 
thirty was organized under Captain L. B. Bumstead to 
carry out the raid. Lieutenant A. Clarke examined the 
position in daylight on the afternoon of the 6th and 
reported that he had gone along Humbug Sap to within 
thirty yards of the enemy and found the sap filled with 
heavy wire. As it was the intention of the raiding party 
to proceed under cover of this sap it was decided to cut 
through the wire as far as possible and demolish the 
remainder by exploding a Bangalor torpedo. Duck- 
boards were to be used if necessary to throw down on 
any untouched portions to advance into the enemy's 
lines. The 5th C. 
I. R. was to make a demonstration 
on the right to distract the enemy and the artillery was 
to arrange for a box-barrage to be put down at a given 
signal. 
The raiding party left the front line at 5.00 p.m. and 
proceeded up Humbug Sap until they came to the wire. 
They worked for three hours unobserved by the enemy 
and at the end of that time had cut about ten yards of 
the wire. The Bangalor Torpedo ,vas then shov
d along 
under the wire but it was impossible to detonate it. The

raiders tried to extract the torpedo from the entangle- 
ment but it was too thoroughly embedded. An attempt 
was then made to cross the broad stretch of wire by means 
of bath-mats, but on the first attempt one of the party 
fell into the ,,-ire and it took half an hour to extricate him. 
"nile they were cutting this man out of the wire their 
presence ,yas discovered by the enemy, who threw bombs, 
but without effect. It ,vas then 10.00 p.m. 1"hey had 
been a,vay five hours, all luck was against them. In the 
early morning of the 8th, three men ,vent out to try and 
rescue the torpedo but they found the enemy 'working 
on his wire and they returned. It ,vas then decided to 
destroy the torpedo by Stokes mortars and after several 
rounds Lieutenant 'V. B. Hastings, who ,vas observing, 
saw an explosion which he believed to be the torpedo

and confirmed his opinion. 
The Battalion was relieved by the 2nd C. 1\1. R. on 
the day after the raid and went into Reserve in the village 
of 1\1azingarbe. The men had a general clean-up on 
the 9th and prepared for the belated Yuletide. Colonel 
Patterson ,vas on leave in Paris and l\Iajor G. F. McFar- 
land was acting Commanding Officer. The dinner was 
held in the suitably decorated local cinema bujlding, two 
companies dining at one time. Captain H. Franks, the 
Quartermaster, had previousl
r journeyed to Enquin-les- 
lVlines and made copious purchases of food and drink. 
They had Pantagruelian porkers with fresh vegetables, 
Christmas pudding and maple sugar. The pièce de 
rés'l
stance was a delectable rum punch generously drunk 
to the music of the new brass band which made its first 
concert appearance during the dinner. Each member 
was greeted ,vith cheers and the slogan "Good old band!" 
On the last day of this rest, the 13th, the Battalion 
held church parade in the Cinema Theatre. The English 
papers, ,yhich arriyed that morning, reported the award 
of the Victoria Cross to Pte. Holmes. On coming out 
of the Cinema after church the companies were lined up 
and Major l\IcFarland announced the award. Three 
cheers and a tiger were given for Pte. Holmes, who ,vas

His exploit at Passchendaele had become a glorious 
tradition in the Battalion. 
The follo,ving day the men returned to the line and 
experienced a sudden thaw with rain. The release of 
the frost from the ground .was so rapid that even the 
well-constructed trenches started to crumble while the 
narrow and less seasoned were almost impassable. Al- 
though the rain continued for some days the Battalion, 
by extra shifts and hard work, soon had the defences 
habitable and the communications open. Both sides 
,vere so occupied ,vith the disintegrating chalky soil that 
there ,,-as little time to annoy each other. The only 
incident of aggression on this tour happened in the early 
morning of Januar
T 19th when Lieutenant .A.. Clarke 
with six of his scouts, cut their way through to the enemy's 
trench. A German appeared and was shot ,vith a re- 
volver by Pte. Haight. This called forth a volley of 
bombs from the enemy. The party circled out of range 
and again approached the wire, this time meeting several 
of the enenlY. Lieutenant A. Clarke shot the leader at 
very clüse range and Lieutenant C. 1.1. 'V. Kicholson who 
was .wounded bombed the remainder. The party, after 
inflicting considerable damage, retired just before day- 
ligh t. 
The last week of January and the first t,vo weeks of 
February ,vere spent at Houdain about ten miles west 
of Les Brébis. The ,veather 'vas clear and mild during 
the first half of this rest but during the remainder 
of the time it was less kind; the cold and wet which 
follo,ved cancelled man
T sports and Brigade manæuvres. 
The officers took advantage of the facilities offered by 
the Hotel du Centre and had several delightful dinner- 
parties. 
lajor G. F. l\IcFarland, who was still acting 
in the absence of Colonel Patterson, gave a dinner to 
the COlnpany Commanders, who went on to an excellent 
concert given by a very talented troupe of the First Army 
Concert Party. Another dinner was given at the Hotel du 
Centre this time by the officers of the Battalion to l\Iajor

Hodgson, (Staff Captain " Q ") and Captain Craig, 
(Staff Captain "I"). These convivial gatherings added 
to the brighter side of warfare. 
Rumours of a return to the Vimy front were confirmed 
on February 17th and the Battalion moved through 
Estrée Cauchie and Neuville St. Vaast to the old Méri- 
court Sector. They were back in the old stamping 
ground that they knew better than any other part of 
France. The poor little village of Neuville St. Vaast 
had all but disappeared. The detritus from its ruins 
had been used to repair the roads; occasionally under the 
mud and plaster could be seen the red-tiled floor of a 
room, or the bent and rusty frame of a baby's cot. 
From it, as far as the eye could see, were new roads, 
Nissen huts and horse-standings. 
The Regiment was almost two months in this sector 
doing duties very similar to those of the last tour at Loos; 
raids and patrolling when in the line, large working 
parties when in support. The wide No-l\Ian's-Land still 
existed, but long grass and weeds blanketed the devast- 
ation of a year ago, the rank vegetation covering the old 
shell-holes and rusted wire. The first two weeks \vere 
cold and wet but withal it was a more pleasant front 
than Hill 70. By the middle of March the ,veather turned 
beautifully spring-like with no wind to clear the ,varm 
haze \vhich shrouded the landscape. During this period 
two of the great German offensives were launched, the 
first to the south and the second to the north of the Corps. 
As previously stated, it was known that the enemy had 
large concentrations of troops and it was not definitely 
known ,vhere a new attack would develop but it ,vas 
expected that one would take place on the Canadian 
front. During these anxious times the greatest effort was 
put forth to stiffen the defences, build new lines of resis- 
tance and organize for a possible invasion of this front. 
Continuous raids were carried out to get identificatioos 
for the Intelligence Branch and at the same time to 
harass the enemy. 
The Battalion had its share in these raiding operations. 
At daybreak on l\Iarch 5th, Lieutenant A. Clarke, 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 99 
Lieutenant T. J. Rutherford, Cpl. Dougherty and Pte. 
Bell, started on a daylight patrol. In the gap which 
extended for six hundred yards between the Battalion 
and the Imperial Division on the right, they suddenly 
encountered an enemy patrol of one officer and six men. 
It was still dark and the unexpected contact was a sur- 
prise to both patrols. The Germans leaped up and made 
their way through the wire with Lieutenant Clarke's 
patrol in pursuit, trying to cut off their retreat with what 
they termed a "revolver barrage. " They shot one man 
through the head and killed him, and took another pris- 
oner in a shell hole. They were brought back for iden- 
tification. 
The next night at dusk Lieutenants A. Clarke and T. J. 
Rutherford with twelve other ranks, went out on another 
patrol to follow up their last victory. They started out 
the Acheville Road and had gone about 500 yards when 
they met a large enemy patrol numbering at least sixty, 
who were evidently waiting for them and had already 
started to encircle them. Led by the officers, the little 
patrol threw one volley of bombs and dashed to the left 
to avoid a machine gun which was preparing to open on 
them. They gave battle until they were in danger of 
being cut off when they adroitly extricated themselves 
and got support from the front line. 
By March 10th the weather ,vas mild and warm and the 
battle patrols became even more numerous and active. 
The Battalion relieved the 1st C. 1\1. R. in the front line 
on the I-tth and early the next morning, before it was 
light, a patrol, under Lieutenants J. M. Dobie and T. J. 
Rutherford, had an encounter on the Quarrie Road with 
an enemy patrol of about the same size. Our patrol was 
returning from No-l\lan's-Land when they clashed with 
the enemy patrol which was outside the ,vire along the 
Quarrie road. There followed a lively few minutes with the 
result that two of the Battalion were slightly wounded 
and Pte. O'Shaughnessey was wounded and missing. 
The Battalion patrol got the best of the argument, dis- 
persing the enemy. Two dead Germans were brought 
in for identification.

'Vhile this ,vas going on, the 5th C. 1\1. R., on the left, 
organized a large raiding party and captured fourteen 
Germans; unfortunately 1\Iajor Sneath, who had lTIany 
friends in the Battalion, ,vas killed ,vhile leading the raid. 
1\lajor G. F. 1\IcFarland, Captain 'V. V. Sifton and one 
platoon under Lieutenant R. H. 'Yarne, attended the 
funeral of 1\lajor Sneath and four men of the 4th C. 
l. R. 
,vho ,vere killed by a trench mortar shell. They were 
buried in Thèlus cemetery on the 17th of 1\Iarch. 
The aerial activity ,vas more noticeable and the monot- 
ony of the lengthening evenings was broken by admiring 
the audacious airmen. One evening at tea-time in the 
cramped quarters of Cubitt Camp, just to the east of 
Neuville St. 'Taast, a football game ,vas interrupted by 
the sudden appearance of a Hun scout-machine dropping 
from a serene open sky. The" Archies" opened on him, 
and the men tried to wing him ,vith their rifles. He dived 
gracefully at a captive-balloon buoyed over the camp. 
A rapid "pop," "pop," "pop," a gushing "puff" and 
the balloon was in flames. He calmly soared and dived 
in succession on one at Souchez and another at Ablain 
St. Nazaire repeating the feat. He s,viftly ",eered away 
and 'vas out of sight before the gently-descending black 
specks in the parachutes had floated to the ground. 
This incident 'vas not indicative of the enemy's ascend- 
ancy in the air. Our own planes 'vere very active and 
'vere continually delighting the troops by their obvious 
predominance. Several enemy planes were seen shot 
down during this tour and even the "Old Buses" which 
patrolled and photographed the front, engaged in several 
daring and successful encounters. 
On one occasion a most spectacular sight was witnessed 
b:r those who were ,vatching ,yith binoculars. One of 
our captive-balloons ,vas set on fire. Immediately the 
occupant was seen s,vaying under his parachute and 
descending gently toward the enemy's lines. An officer 
of the Battalion, who ,vas following the flight through 
his field-glasses, saw the observer trying to release some- 
thing from his equiplTIent. At first he imagined that 
he was preparing to thro,v away his maps and papers

before he crossed into enemy territory, but instead, he 
sa w him raise his arm above his head and discharge his 
revolver into the bulging parachute. Immediately, the 
air resistance was reduced and he descended rapidly 
'within our own lines It was a most ingenious act of 
bravery. 
The Battalion had been thirty-two days in the line, 
seventeen in the front line and fifteen in support without 
rest or baths, 'when relieved by the 52nd Battalion on 
the night of l\Iarch 20th. By 4.30 a.m. the next morning 
the men were back in Hill's Camp at Keuville St. Vaast. 
In spite of the long spell in the trenches the Battalion was 
'warned to provide large working parties for the forward 
area that night. The men turned out cheerfully, for 
the ,veather was perfect, a condition that conduced to 
good spirits. This was on l\Iarch 21st, a date which 
became historical. In the afternoon the Battalion heard 
rumours of a German offensive but they knew nothing 
of its dimensions; they could hear the continuous rumble 
to the south, like distant thunder and knew that it 
was no ordinary bombardment. The working parties 
,vere paraded and ready to move off at 5.00 p.m. when 
everything ,vas suddenly cancelled and orders received 
to be ready to relieve part of the 186th Imperial Infantry 
Brigade. 
Consequently on the night of the 23rd-24th the Bat- 
talion took over from three companies of the 8th ''''est 
Yorks and two companies of the Duke of 'Vellington's in 
and around the Railway embankment and Brierley Hill 
Trench on the Arleux Sector. This was a temporary 
move and lasted only a few days. By the 28th the 
Battalion returned to Neuville St. Vaast and was under 
half an hour's notice. By 12.25 p.m. orders were 
received to occupy a line from Junction Redoubt to 
Chanticleer Post. The men were back again in Cubitt 
Camp for Easter Sunday on l\Iarch 31st and had a 
church parade, baths and a general clean-up. From 
there they did the usual round of duties. There was 
great activity all along the line in preparing new defences 
for possible emergencies. Colonel Patterson took his

whole Battalion and worked on the construction of new 
support trenches. The shelling and registering had 
increased and an attack was expected. 
""hen the Battalion went into the line from the 5th 
to the 11 th, they left a quota of officers and men at the 
Transport lines as a precautionary measure, so that, in case 
of a sudden bombardment and an attack as at Sanctuary 
'Vood, the unit would not be wiped out. This 'was in 
accordance with the Allied plan. This was really the 
last tour the Unit made in the trenches on this front. 


he good weather broke; it rained heavily and the 
trenches were in a very bad state, becoming knee-deep 
with mud. The Canadian Corps already on l\Iarch 28th 
had elongated its line to relieve Divisions of the First and 
Third Armies and again on April 11 th the whole Canadian 
Corps readjusted its front. The 8th Brigade moved to 
the Hill 70 sector. The Battalion was relieved and 
reached its billets at 8.00 a.m. on the 12th; but the men 
were up again at 10.00 a.m. making preparations to move. 
They marched to Territorial Siding on the Arras-Bethune 
Road and entrained on the narro\v-gauge railway. 
After an uninterrupted journey on this miniature line, 
they detrained at 1.00 a.ln. on the 18th at Aix Noulette 
and marched through Bully Grenay to Les Brébis where 
they arrived at 4.00 p.m. 
On the previous visit to Les Brébis they had been 
astonished to find many civilians so near the Front. 
Now these people were L being evacuated by orders of 
the French Government. 1\1. Clemenceau had been 
at Les Brébis the day before and personally issued 
the proclamation that all the residents were to leave at 
once. Here the Battalion witnessed one of those sad 
sights, common enough in 1914 on the retreat from 
Mons, but rare since that time. The exodus had started 
at 5.00 a.m. on April 2nd. All during the day sombre-faced 
women and old men struggled with the packing and 
loading of their effects. N early seven thousand people, 
without the help of their strong men who ,vere in the 
fighting-line else,vhere, were carrying bundles of bedding, 
dishes, kitchen utensils and garden tools. 'V omen pushed

wheelbarrows, children trundled baby carriages and many 
an old man dragged a heavy two-wheeled cart sometimes 
with the aid of a mangy cur. The larger pieces had to 
be left behind unless prosperity ha d provided a suitab]e 
vehicle. In the early morning light with gun-flashes 
vying with the rising sun it was pitiful to witness weeping 
women borne do\vn and hampered by little children 
dragging at their skirts. il-Iost of these courageous 
people had cleared the town by the next day. They 
took their \va:)" ,vestward, possibly to friends or relatives 
in other parts, or to biJIets prepared by the Government. 
French motor-l
rries helped to shift their chattels, also 
gendarmerie arrived to assist, and to picket the town. In 
two days all the civilians were gone, except those em- 
ployed at the mines as caretakers. 
This evacuation followed the German offensive on 
April 9th against the British on the Lys in front of 
Armentières. On the day the Battalion reached Les 
Brébis this great battle, raging to the north of them, was 
at its height. Armentières had fallen, the enemy had 
crossed the Lys and 'was pressing on toward the Forest 
of 
leppe and 8t. Venant. This was one of the notably 
British days in the \var. And as in other crises in fOrIDer 
wars on land and sea there came down to the men from 
the Commander-in-Chief, concise words, peculiarly Brit- 
ish, telling them to put their backs to the wall. 
On the 17th the Battalion received orders to take over 
the left sub-section of the front line in front of Hill 70. 
Owing to the hostile operations north of La Bassée the 
dispositions of the companies were altered from the 
ordinary routine, so they \vent in under a different organ- 
ization to what they had when they had occupied this 
section in the previous January. A special defence, 
known as the Blue Line, had been constructed and the 
forward troops were under orders in case of a heavy bom- 
bardment and impending attack to retire to this line. 
The Battalion relieved the 2nd C. 1\1. R; three companies 
in the front line and a fourth in support 'with one platoon 
with the Commanding officer at Battalion Headquarters 
and the remainder in the cellars of Loos. On this day

the Battalion learned that the British had been forced to 
retire from Passchendaele. 
Almost at once Colonel Patterson ,vas informed by 
the Brigade that it ,vould be necessary to secure identi- 
fications by a raid. Captain L. B. Bumstead, command- 
ing "c" company and Lieutenant G. Heighington of 
the same company, volunteered. There ,vere to be 
raids b:y other Battalions at the same time. Captain 
Bumstead chose a party of sixty men and prepared plans 
to raid the enemy at Humbug Sap. During the day of 
April 21st he outfitted his men with bombs, flares, pistols, 
wire-cutters and other necessary equipment and moved 
in the evening from Tosh Alley and Loos Trench to 
quarters in the front line. l\lajor ,Yo Y. Sifton and 
Lieutenant G. F. l\IacDuff established an advanced 
Battalion Headquarters in a dugout in the front line in 
Hugo Trench to the left of Humbug Sap. l\Iajor H. C. 
Davis, the lVledical Officer and Captain 'V. H. Davis, 
the Padre, took up a position in an adyanced dressing 
station in the front line. At 11.27 p.m. gold and silver 
rain-rockets ,vere fired from the Fosse at Loos and three 
minutes later the 18 Pounders, 4.5's and 6 inch Howitzers, 
opened a liyely bombardment on the Brigade sector; 
presumably as a retaliation for the heavy shelling but 
in reality to disturb the enemy's defences. 
At 1.30 a.m. on the 22nd, the barrage opened and as 
there were other raids in progress it made an imposing 
"shoot." Three minutes later the raiding party, which 
was divided, ,vent fOr\vard. Both sections encountered 
"Tire and it took nearI
T fifteen minutes to cut gaps and 
get through. The left party under Captain Bumstead 
was at once faced b
r a machine-gun which ,vas encircled, 
the cre,v of four killed and the gun captured. This 
party established "blocks" and proceeded to mop up 
the trenches. The enemv had fled do,vn his cOlnmuni- 
cation trenches and onlÿ two wounded prisoners were 
found, one in a dugout and one in a cement pill-box. The 
right party under Lieutenant Heighingtonproceeded to the 
corner of a ,vood where they found a vacated bombing 
post; continuing they discovered a "Pineapple" dump un-

tended and the granatenwerfer gone. A Httle further 
there 'vas a machine-gun mounted at the entrance to a 
dugout. Half the crew fled over-land, the remainder 
taking shelter in the dugout in which others had taken 
refuge. The party flung stick-bombs down the entrance 
"
ounding one German ,vho gave himself up. The rest 
would not come out and a gas bomb was hurled down 
the opening; the
r still refused to surrender so Lieutenant 
Heighington flung in enough l\lills bombs to destroy the 
dug-out. 
The raiding parties ha:d been gone over an hour when 
the green-red-green flare was fired as a signal to 'withdraw. 
One prisoner had the misfortune to succumb before the 
party got clear of the enemy lines. One un,vounded 
prisoner of the 190th I.R. 2nd Ersatz Battalion was 
captured and tw'O machine guns. Seven of the enemy 
are known to have been killed and it ,vas estimated that 
at least forty were trapped in the deep dugout. The 
Battalion had four men wounded and the great misfor- 
tune to lose Sgt. Boyce ,vho died of wounds at the dressing 
station. Captain Bumstead and Lieutenant Heighing- 
ton were awarded the l\lilitary Cross. 
On the 29th word came that the L'nit ,vould be relieved 
by an Imperial Battalion and the next day officers of the 
7th N orthamptons, ,vho had been in the fighting on the 
Fifth Army front came to look over the ground. The First, 
Third and Fourth Canadian Divisions were relieved and 
were now assembling ,vith other reserves, in prevision of 
further attacks by the enemy, in General Headquarters 
Reserve, First Army A.rea. On ::\Iay 2nd the Battalion 
marched back to Les Brébis and ,vas transported by bus 
to ::\Ionchy Breton, marching fro In there to l\Iagnicourt, a 
little village on the Lawe river about ten kilometres south 
of Houdain. It was a pleasant place in the full bloom of 
spring, a happy change; for they had been steadily in 
the for".arrl area since the middle of February, except for 
a fe,v days in Les Brébis. Thev ,vere in wonderful 
spirits and at once began to m;ke themselves smart 
again. The band played at Guard ::\Iounting, which 
was done in style, and all the old formalities 'vere revived.

l\iay was a series of marches, musketry, training and 
changing billets. The men were only a few days at 
Magnicourt. On the 5th there was a move to Rely, on 
the 9th to Ham-en-Artois in the St. Venant area, from 
where they did three days musketry at Fontes. On 
the 21st, they went into bivouacs near Busnes just south 
of St. lr enant. Although tbe men had been in some 
of the finest billets in France they were not disap- 
pointed with their bivouacs. They had small bro"'
n 
"bivvy" covers pitched in the field of a farm house and the 
officers in the orchard. The weather was beautiful; the 
days were warm and the nights balmy. The men bathed 
in the little stream behind the farm when not working 
on the defences of La Bassée canal. Baseball was revived 
and after getting into shape by inter-company games, 
the Battalion baseball team, with 200 supporters, 
went to Ham-en-Artois and defeated the 1st C. lVI. R. 
The Baseball "operation orders" issued by Corporal 
}\;lonk and Private Gorman of the Orderly Room staff 
'were a source of great amusement and eagerly looked 
forward to by the men. 
At the end of the month came a march of fifteen miles 
westward in the heat of a bright warm day, and the Bat- 
talion was again in Enquin-Ies-l\lines which was consid- 
ered almost as home. The men had gone there from 
Passchendaele and chance had brought them back. The 
village was enbowered in foliage and decked in its summer 
garb, and of all biUets the men liked these the best. 
They spent the greater part of June there, practising 
manæuvres with the rest of the Brigade. They used the 
First Army special manæuvre region, known as the 
Bomy Area, and had great difficulty in keeping within 
the law respecting the damaging of crops and other 
things, although it was impressed upon everyone that 
claims for damage had to be paid by the unfortunate 
British tax-payer. There were a great many recreations 
of all kinds which developed into Brigade and finally 
Divisional sports. At the Brigade Field Day, on the 
18th, the Battalion won the Baseball Championship.

probably the most fateful day in the history of the 4th 
C. :\1. R., a church service was held and 500 men attended. 
Captain Holman of the 1st C. 1\1. R., recalled in the most 
vivid language, the story of the "originals" who were 
reduced in a few hours from 700 to 70 men. The Band 
played "Abide with l\Ie" while the men stood to atten- 
tion. A few were present ,vho had been at Sanctuary 

V ood 
nd for this handful, especially, it was a most 
ImpressIve ceremony. 
Everyone was very pleased to find in Battalion orders 
on the 8th, that Lieutenant A. Clarke had been awarded 
the l\Iilitary Cross, and Sgt. F. Lyons, Sgt. 'V. Older 
and Pte. S. T. Foster, the Distinguished Conduct 
Iedal. 
During this time an international enemy made its 
appearance. At first it was a great mystery and even 
to the l\Iedical profession it was known as P.D.O. (Py- 
rexia Unknown Origin). It was also expressed as Span- 
ish "Flu" and originally supposed to be another German 
atrocity introduced through Spain but, fortunately, the 
enemy also had it. It developed into the well-known 
Influenza, and was most serious for all the Armies. 
Their man-strength was reduced enormously. In the 
Battalion, at the first indication of the epidemic, seventy 
men went sick. 1\Ianæuyres and sports had to be 
cancelled on account of the depleted ranks. 
The Second Canadian Division had been in the line 
under the VI Corps, Third Army, Neuville Vitasse Sector, 
south of Arras, since 
Iarch 28th. The Third Division 
was ordered to relieve it. Consequently training was 
suspended on June 25th and the Battalion moved south. 
They ,vent by train frolll Aire to Savy ,,
here they 
detrained and marched to :\Ianin, a little village near 
A vesnes-le Comte, behind Arras. The Battalion passed 
through this district on the march from the Somme to 
'
imy. It had two chateaux, reminders of the Royalist 
régime, where the \vhole Battalion was able to billet 
either in them or in their surrounding buildings. On the 
29th they lnarched to Bretencourt, settling in 
issen 
huts for the night, and \vent into the support trenches 
of the l\Iercatel sector on the night of the 30th, relieving

the 25th Canadian Infantry Battalion and becoming part 
of the VI Corps. 
Mercatel 'was a village five miles south of Arras on the 
Arras-Bapaume Road. Prior to the Battle of Arras in 
the spring of 1917, it was just ,vithin the German lines 
but ,vhen the enemy was pushed back to the Hindenburg 
Line this area was built up with hutments and other 
temporary shelters. The German counter-drive in 1918 
brought the line back but not as far as its original location. 
The foe ,vas stopped on the other side of 1\Ierca tel and 
the line ran through former British camps. Consequently 
in the rather ,vide No-l\lan's-Land ,vere standing in a 
more or less dilapidated condition Nissen and Adrian 
huts ,vhich had been used as rest billets, Y. 1\1. C. A. huts 
or Cinema buildings. The front was quiet, the ,veather 
good and there was plenty of material lying about as 
salvage to improve the" bivvys" and" funk-holes." The 
men \vere in battle order 'without great-coats or blankets, 
but the lack of external protection was counteracted by 
the renewal of the rum ration, a less cumbersome, and 
more effective antidote for the cold. The Battalion 
spent the first three weeks of July in this area; two 
weeks in support and in the line and the last week at 
'Yailly where the men billeted in the mid-summer heat 
under the trees of 'Yaillv '''ood. The rear Details \vere 
organized into "Last Ditchers" and practiced manning 
a defence line knO'wn as the Purple Line. On the 4th 
Captain Steer took over "D" Company from Captain 
L. G. l\Iills, ,vho returned to Canada. 
An act which took unusual courage, occurred on the 
morning of July 10th after a party of "B" Company had 
returned from patrolling the front. They were standing 
in the trench having the usual "pow-wow" when Pte. F. 
'Yilson who had been on the patrol, in trying to remove 
a l\lills Bomb from his pocket, released the pin igniting 
the time-fuse. He realized that the bomb would explode 
before he could get it out, so with great coolness and 
presence of mind, he turned the bomb away from his 
comrades and moved down the trench. Before he could 
extract it the bomb detonated, mortally ,vounding him

but nane of the others ,vere touched. Pte. 'Vilson's 
heroism and quick thinking saved the lives of his com- 
rades. 
Only one large aggressive movement was made by the 
Battalion in July and that was a carefully planned raid 
on the 13th. There had been many efforts b
T strong 
patrols to get identifications but the enemy seemed to 
ha ve adopted a policy of retiring from his posts and 
warning the main body as soon as he suspected a raid. 
On the 12th Lieutenants T. J. Rutherford and A. Cam- 
eron, with fifteen other ranks, made a special recon- 
naissance for the purpose of securing identifications. 
They rushed a post but found only some rifles, respir- 
ators, and other equipment; the enemy had vacated as 
usual. The Brigade ,vanted positive identification of 
the regiment opposite and issued orders for a raid by 
the 1st and 4th C. 1\1. R. on the night of the 13th. 
There was to be an artillery demonstration on the Neuville 
Yitasse sector to the north and the raid was to be carried 
out in stealth to the south. The 4th C. 1\1. R. was 
ordered to organize two parties. 
Iajor 'V. Y. Sifton, 
Lieutenant G. Heyworth and twenty-four men, with a 
covering party of sixteen men under Lieutenant F. W. 
Rous, formed the left party. Lieutenants T. J. Ruther- 
ford and A. Cameron and thirty men formed the right 
party. At the last moment the plans ,vere upset by the 
postponement of the artillery "shoot" to a later hour 
and the raid ,vas attempted ,vithout the counteracting as- 
sistance of the guns. The right party left the lines at 
dusk and proceeded up a road a short distance ,vhere they 
waited for half an hour and then went for,vard and recon- 
noitred one of the posts to be raided. They surrounded 
it and found it deserted, signs of very recent occupation 
were evident; rifles, ammunition, cylindrical stick bombs 
and "Pineapple" bombs ,vere found. The left party 
took two Lewis Guns and moved together to their objec- 
tives reconnoitring l\Iyrtle trench and l\lyrtle Sap on the 
'Y8Y. They soon ran into heavy bands of "concertina" 
wire. The party split up into three, Lieutenant Rous 
and his men ,vith the two Le,vis Guns were left as a cover-

ing party and the remainder divided, half going with 
Major Sifton along the left of the road and the other 
half under Lieutenant Heyworth, on the right. Both 
parties cut through three belts of wire, investigated 
shelters in a sunken road and found them unoccupied. 
Finally Lieutenant Hey,,?orth located an enemy post and 
,vas preparing to rush it when he 'was engaged with 
hea yy machine-gun fire and rifle grenades. l\Iajor Sifton 
immediately went to his assistance and together they 
rushed the post but the enemy immediately 'withdrew to 
gather reinforcements. Returning in numbers the Ger- 
mans counter-attacked under cover of heavy machine- 
gun fire from both flanks. All the elements of stealth 
were removed, the ,vhole front was awakened so the 
party withdre,v. Lieutenant Heyworth was wounded 
while he and Cpl. Goheen were endeavoring to carry 
back the dead body of Pte. Brock. 
The Germans had ceased their activities on this front 
and had turned their attention to the French. The 
forlner had made their first attack in l\Iay (when the 
Battalion was at Busnes), a second in June and at this 
time (July 15th) \"vere beginning their last great effort- 
the l\larne-Champagne drive. Three days afterwards 
the French opened the remarkable counter-offensive of 
the Allies ,vhich was the beginning of the end. 
The men expected to go into the line at Neuville 
Vitasse from 'Vailly '\Yood. Instead they moved to Etrun, 
the village from which they first went to the Vimy front. 
They arrived on July 28rd and two days later went to 
Cliff Camp, remaining there for three days providing 
working parties and doing musketry at Bray. On the 
27th they turned out 500 strong under l\Iajor G. F. l\lc- 
Farland to dig trenches. It rained all day and as they 
were doing one of those "task" jobs they returned at 
noon soaked to the skin. A "task" usuallv meant 
digging a certain length of trench per man depe"iIding on 
the depth, width and nature of the soil. It was rarely 
a popular job, especially if laid-out and supervised by a 
Sapper Sergeant. The 28th was a Sunday, delightfully 
clear and warm and everyone was having a sun-bath

after the drenching of the day before. They ,vere pre- 
pared for a repeat order for a large working party when 
everything ,vas cancelled and they were warned by tele- 
phone to prepare to move the next day to an unknown 
destination. This resulted in the concocting of all kinds 
of rumours, of a move south, or north, or even to Russia. 


THE STRATEGIC TRAIN 


For the next ten days, July 29th to August 7th, the 
Battalion played a most interesting rôle in the execution 
of the general scheme preparatory to the British offensive 
on August 8th. The Battalion was one* of the pawns used 
in the opening moves of that great secret game and was 
cleverly manæuvred to deceive the enemy before employ- 
ing the larger pieces to check-mate him. The Battalion 
was sent to :L\font Kemmel, on a mission of deception, 
before joining the Canadian Corps and General Rawlinson's 
Fourth Army at Amiens for that wonderful COlmter- 
offensive so brilliantly conceived by the Higher Command. 
It was hoped that their presence on this new sector would 
lead the Germans to suppose that all the Canadians were 
there, throwing them off the scent of the real movement 
of the Corps. They proceeded north as nobody's child, 
under mysterious orders and after three days in the 
trenches were rushed south again by a circuitous route 
to Amiens rejoining the Corps just in time to synchronize 
with the surprise attack which opened the Last Hundred 
Days. 
The first intimation the Battalion had of this mvster- 
ious move came from the Brigade on July 29th, on 
 pink 
signal slip ordering them to move from Cliff Camp to 
Acq and entrain at 4.00 p.m. "for a destination not yet 
notified." After they had departed they were told that 
their destination was Arneke and that they were moving 
on a "Strategic Train." They had never heard of this 
kind of train and its ambiguous name did not enlighten 
them. The train went via St. Pol, Aire and Hazebroúck 


· The 27th Battalion, two C. C. 8's, and the Wireless and Power Buzzer 
sections also moved to the same area.

much faster than most troop trains, arriving at Arneke, 
five miles northwest of Cassel at midnight. 
The Battalion was met by an R. T. O. and a 
Town l\lajor, both rather junior officers, who did not 
impress those \vho had to confer with them. Colonel 
Patterson was given a two-coloured map and the free- 
dom of the area, which he found to be a field. How- 
ever, it belonged to a kindly fanner who turned out in 
the middle of the night, offered his barn to the officers 
and helped in stowing a,vay everyone for the night. 
The following day at noon the Battalion left this tem- 
porary camp and marched in oppressive heat to a tented 
area at St. Eloi, near Abeele. The men's packs had been 
left behind and \vere brought on by lorry, so the unit 
marched light through Cassel and Steenvoorde. l\lany 
of the inhabitants searched in vain for familiar faces. 
A few of the older members of the Battalion \vere seen 
to nod or wave or give some word in passing concerning 
those comrades \vho w"ere no longer in the ranks. The 
Battalion came under orders of the 41st Division, com- 
manded by Sir Sydney Lawford, moved into a new camp 
on the 31st, and on August 1st marched from the camp 
near Abeele through Reninghelst and into the line on the 
La Clytte sector taking over from the 15th Hampshires. 
"B" Company was in the front line, and" A" "C" and 
" D" in support. The line consisted mainly of out-posts 
hurriedly made during the rear-guard action against the 
Germans on the Lys. Very little work had been done 
in consolidating as practically all movement ,vas ob- 
served from Kemmel Hill which ,vas in the hands of the 
Germans. 
Rain came on the second day in the line. The living 
quarters were bad, and this fact combined \vith a rumour 
that another move was in prospect dampened the good 
spirit of the men. Patrols ,vere active at night in K 0- 
l\lan's-Land ,vhere there were old Nissen Huts and fonner 
habitations as on the l\Iercatel sector. Lieutenants J. 
C. Coxford and 'V. A. l\IacLachlan, with an artillery 
liaison officer, ,vent out to investigate a rumour that 
there ,vere a number of abandoned Field Guns in Name-

less Farm. In a hedge they found four IS-Pounders, 
two of them ne,v, one having been passed by Ordnance as 
late as A.pril of the same year. The Division was notified, 
,vith an offer to help in luan-handling them in, but 
nothing was done. 
On the next morning at 6.00 o'clock a shell struck "B" 
Company's Headquarters killing Captain T. ,Yo E. Dixon, 
l\1.C., )1.)1., and ,vounding Captain B. D. Poyser, ::\1.C., 
Second-in-Command of the Company. Captain Dixon was 
one of the most popular officers in the Regin1ent. He 
had been ,vith it since its inception and had risen from 
the ranks to command a COlnpany and had been through 
all the vicissitudes of the Battalion. 'Yhen the Battalion 
was relieved early the next morning, a squad of Captain 
Dixon's old scouts volunteered to carry out his body. 
They got back to billets in the 'Yippenhoek area before 
dawn and at S.OO a.m. a funeral seryice was held in 
'Yippenhoek cemetery. The pipers played "The Flow- 
ers of the Forest" for the lament and the bugles sounded 
"The Last Post. " Thus the Battalion paid hasty tribute 
to an officer and a gentleman. 
Immedia tely afterwards, the Unit pushed on to the 
main road ,vest of Poperinghe where forty lorries were 
waiting to transport them across to Nieurlet, where 
they arrived at noon and turned in for a well deserved 
sleep. Reveille was sounded at Inidnight and by 2.00 
a.m. they were moving in single file over a duck-board 
track across the marshes to St. Orner where they 'were 
loaded into thirty box cars, seventeen flat cars and one 
coach for the officers. They pulled out at 4.00 a.m. 
before it 'was light and were never seen again in that part 
of the country. 
The train made a ver
T fast journey to Boulogne, turned 
south to Abbeville, followed the Somme to Amiens and at 
2.00 p.m. on the 6th the Battalion detrained at Saleux, 
about six miles south-,vest of 
\miens. In ten hours the 
whole unit ,,-as in an entirely new theatre. 
After resting at Sa leu x during the afternoon of the 6th, 
the men moved off at S.30 p.m. in a heavy rain, going over 
the hills through Dury and St. Fuscien and down into

Boves, seven miles south-eRst of Amiens. By mid- 
night they had arrived about three miles outside the town 
but they ran into such a jam of traffic that a period of 
five hours was occupied in getting through to their billets. 
Boves, a small viHage, lying astride the river A vre 
seemed dead in the daytime, but at night it ,yas the 
centre of seething activity. Soon after twilight, from hid- 
den crannies came creeping tractors, lumbering tanks, 
huge guns, thousands of ,vaggons and innumerable limbers, 
all preparing to move forward, towards the front. Out 
of the houses poured troops ,vho formed up ,yherever 
they could find a space. Drivers ,vho had been cleaning 
and oiling their harness during the day in their billets, 
were limbering-up their teams. Lorry drivers were 
tinkering at their engines. No one would recognize the 
innocent little place of the day time. 
The Battalion entered this orderly confusion on the 
night of the 7th and moved up to its assembly posi- 
tions preparatory to the great British battle \vhich was 
to commence at sunrise in the morning. 



CH,APTER VIII 


THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 


F ROl\I the commencement of the British counter-offen- 
sive to the Armistice became kno\vn as The Last 
Hundred Days. They\vere the days that every arm 
of the Service had been anticipating for four long 
years; glorious, wonderful days; days full of action, 
and action ,vhich gave results. They were days of real 
advancing, open fighting, big manæuvres, book-\varfare. 
And the Battalion had its share of the Canadian Corps's 
lion's share; they were always with the vanguard of the most 
advanced army, starting at Amiens and finishing at l\Ions. 
After almost four years of stationary warfare and colossal 
struggles, after the experiences gained from the diminu- 
tive results of battles organized and prepared and carried 
out on a titanic scale, the story of the final blow of the 
Allies and its consequences reads like fiction. No one 
expected the British Army to rise so suddenly from all 
it had gone through since l\Iarch and strike a blow which 
brought, as Ludendorff said, "the black day of the 
German Army." 
The following résumé of the British battles and their 
effects during The Last Hundred Days gives a broad 
view of the whole front and \vill show in a general ,yay 
the tactical place- those actions, in which the Battalion 
was engaged, took in the British strategy. The Battle 
of Amiens was the first British counter-stroke after four 
months on the defensive. It commenced on August 8th 
and in a fe\v days disengaged Amiens and freed the Paris- 
Arnie IS railway. The attack was then transferred a 
little north to the Battle of Bapaume ,vhich, turning the 
flank of the German positions on the Somme, compelled 
thelTI to withdraw to the east bank of the river. Their ne\v 
positions ,yere then turned from the north by the Battle

of Arras in ,vhich the Battalion participated and which 
started a few days later on August 
6th breaking the 
Drocourt-Quéant line, forcing the enemy to fall back on 
the outer defences of the Hindenburg Line. As a direct 
result of these battles the Lys Salient was eyacuated by 
the enelny, Lens ,vas regained and the Hazebrouck and 
other important railways freed. Then came the Battle 
of Epéhy breaking through the outer Hindenburg 
defences and preparing the ,vay for the attack on the main 
line on the Cambrai-St. Quentin front. The Battle for 
Cambrai started Septelnber 27th and the Battalion 
entered the town ,vith the first troops on October 9th. 
The last and strongest of the enemy's prepared positions 
was taken, opening the ,vay to a war of even greater 
movement and an advance on the German main lines of 
communication. At the saIne tilne further north in the 
last Battle of Y pres the enelny ,vas driven back so far 
that his positions on the Belgian Coast 'vere endangered. 
This success was extended bv the Battle of Courtrai com- 
mencing on October 14th, ,;
hich widened and deepened 
the salient and resulted in the capture of the to,vn. This 
series of battles north and south had as its ÌInmediate 
result, the evacuation of Laon and the retreat of the 
enemy to the Aisne, the Selle and the ScheIdt. He ,vas 
driven from this line in the Battle of the Selle and dealt 
a final blo'w at l\Iaubeuge 'which broke his last ÌInportant 
lateral communications, turned his positions on the 
ScheIdt and forced him to retreat rapidly from Courtrai. 
This victory completed the great strategical aim of the 
Allies by diyiding, in effect, the enemy's forces into two 
parts, one on each side of the great natural barrier of the 
Ardennes. The pursuit of the beaten foe all along the 
line was stopped only by the Armistice. 
The Battalion had an active interest in practically all 
these big battles. Its general history 'vas bound up with 
that of the Canadian Corps, ,rhich ,vas hurled along with 
General Sir H. S. Rawlinson's Fourth Army into the Battle 
of Amiens, then sent north into the First Army of General 
Sir H. S. Horne and the Battle of Arras, swinging into the 
Battle of Cambrai and then north between Douai and

Al\HENS 
The Battle of Amiens was a joint attack by the French 
First Army and General Rawlinson's Fourth Army. 
The Canadian Corps was transferred to the Fourth 
Army a fe,v days prior to the attack to be used as assault 
troops, fighting between the Australian Corps and the 
French XXXI Corps. They were the spearhead of the 
attack against the nose of the salient created by the 
German offensive in l\1arch. _\.s a result of the success 
of the Allied counter-offensive on Julv 28th l\1arshal 
Foch enlarged the operations from those previously 
conceived, to include the complete reduction of the 
salient. The original intention ,vas merely to relieve the 
pressure on the Amiens- Paris railway. I t was decided 
to attack without the usual preliminary bombardment 
and to rely upon the element of surprise, using tanks, 
motor machine-gun units, cavalry and every mobile unit 
to overrun the enemy the first day to a depth of 14,000 
yards in the direction of Ham and to push forward to 
the Roye-Chaulnes line with the least possible delay. 
It ,vas one of the best-kept secrets of the ,var, officers of 
the highest rank on Corps staffs only being told. All sorts 
of expedients ,vere employed to deceive both the enemy 
and our own men; for example General Currie made com- 
plete preparations for an attack on Orange Hill in front of 
Arras; the Tanks ,vere concentrated at St. Pol; the 4th 
C. :\1. R. were sent to l\1ont Kemmel; fake radio mes- 
sages, which the enemy could decipher, were released. 
This deception and secrecy was maintained to the last. 
Troops were rushed, at the eleventh hour, under cover 
of night into the battle assembly-areas,(the Battalion 
relieved another unit only two hours before zero). 
Fleets of 'Yhippet Tanks stealthily crept into position 
,yhile bombing planes drownedJ.their noise. Guns of all

calibres were hauled 'into emplacements, calnouflaged 
and then waited for zero hour before firing. 
The Canadian Corps Front extended from the south- 
easterly outskirts of Villers-Bretonneux, crossing the 
River Luce about 800 yards north-east of Hourges and 
passed through the western portion of Hangard 'V ood. 
The southerly boundary was the Amiens-Roye road in 
liaison with the French First Army; the northerly boun- 
dary, the Amiens-Chaulnes Railway in liaison with the 
Australian Corps. The Second, First and Third Can- 
adian Divisions were in line from north to south; the 
Fourth Canadian, Thirty-Second* Imperial and Third 
Cavalry Divisions were in Corps Reserve. Of the Third 
Canadian Division the 9th Brigade led in the attack, 
followed by the 7th and 8th Brigades, one leap-frogging 
through the other. The 4th C. M. R. was not engaged 
in the fighting the first day, but followed in the wake of 
the forward movement until the second day when it 
attacked along the Amiens-Roye Road, on the southern 
boundary, taking Folies. 
To return to the particular; the Battalion rejoined 
the Corps on August 6th at Boves, and on the night of 
the 7th started at 8.30 p.m. and got to its first assembly 
position at 11.20 p.m. in support of the force attacking 
along the north shore of the River Luce. The 1st and 
2nd C. 1\1. R. were to launch the attack of the 8th Brig- 
ade; the 1st C. 1\1. R. was to be responsible for the 
capture of Hangard Village and the defences of its 
easterly outskirts, the 2nd C. l\f. R. to pass through, 
ca pturing the ground further east and assist the 9th 
and 7th Brigades 1?y attacking Demuin. 
The Battalion remained during the night of the 7th in its 
assembly position near Gentelles. At 4.20 a.m. on August 
8th, the artillery began a hurricane bombardment followed 
by a rolling barrage. At 6.20 the Battalion started to move 
forward in single file through a heavy ground-mist to 
the second assembly position in a deep chalky ravine. 
They arrived at 8.00 a.m. with practically no retaliation 


· The 32nd Division came under the Canadian Corps only on the night of 
August 9th-10th.

from the enemy and by that time scores of German 
prisoners were passing to the rear. Information started 
to dribble through and it was soon learned that the 
attack ,vas an absolute surprise and a tremendous success. 
The 1st C.1\I R. had taken Hangard and the 2nd 
C. 1\:1. R. was advancing on Demuin. At 9.00 a.m. a 
message was received from Brigade stating that all 
objectives had been taken and that the 2nd C. 1\1. R. 
had crossed a bridge over the Luce and entered Demuin 
with very few casualites. By 11.00 a.m. the fog had 
lifted and prisoners were pouring back. Everything was 
quiet, hardly a gun was firing; a ho,vitzer which had been 
bellowing all morning in the ravine beside the battalion 
was being pulled out and moved forward. The captive 
balloons had been brought up and one was floating 
directly over the Battalion. Everything that could not 
reach the enemy was moving forward; the highways and 
byways were again crammed. The Battalion joined the 
pursuing multitude at 3.00 p.ln. and Inarched to a new ren- 
dezvous of the Brigade south-east of Hangard in the neigh- 
borhood of Demuin where they bivouacked for the night. 
At 2.00 o'clock on the morning of the 9th a message 
,vas received that the 8th Brigade ,vould form the advance 
guard of a tactical march of the 3rd Division down the 
Rore Road to establish definite touch 'with the enemy. 
The Battalion fell in at 8.00 a.m. preparatory to the 
march, but the order was cancelled, and the Unit was 
instructed to assemble with the Brigade in a wood south- 
east of Demuin. Marching north-east along the 1\Ioreuil- 
Demuin Road through Demuin and out along the 
1\lezières Road, they received ne'v orders; on the cap- 
ture of Ie Quesnel, the Brigade would advance, the 
4th C. 1\1. R. would pass through the 75th Battalion and 
take the village of Folies, and the 5th C. l\I. R., Bouchoir. 
Colonel Patterson explained the situation to his Company 
commanders and ordered ".A" Company (l\Iajor 'V. V. 
Sifton) and" C" Company (Lieutenant L. G. Bumstead) 
to attack on the right and left respectively with "B" 
Company (Lieutenant A. D. 1\IcDonald) in close support 
and "D" Company (l\Iajor E. .\. Steer) in reserve.

The 13a ttalion moved along the Inain Amiens- ROJ"e 
road and halted for ha]f an hour to unload the Lewis 
guns and then sent the limbers back. A little further the 
water-carts and ammunition mules were left under the 
Regimental Sergeant-Major until needed. The men then 
turned off the main road to a side road leading into Ie 
Quesnel which had already fallen. They halted outside 
the town and sent scouts ahead to reconnoitre the jump- 
ing-off positions. At 1.15 p.m. the companies moved 
forward, "A" and "C" companies going around the 
northern edge while "B" Company ,vent through the 
middle of the town. The enemy was now settling down 
to a stubborn resistance. The town of le Quesnel was 
being heavily she}]ed, and the Companies were getting 
casualties. Among others, Lieutenant A. D. l\IcDonald 
acting in command of "B" Company, was killed by a 
she}] while marching at the head of his Company down 
the main street of the to,vn. Lieutenant R. ,Yo 'Yarnica, 
although not the next senior officer, took his place and 
led the company so successfully that he received the Bel- 
gian Croix de Guerre. 
It was found that the Fourth Division "
as still engaged 
'with the enemy and so had been unable to make good the 
jumping-off positions on the east side of the town and 
that the Germans held certain posts even in the outskirts 
of the to'wn itself. "C" Company and a platoon of "A" 
Company assisted the 75th Battalion to clear two of these 
posts. About 1.50 p.m. "A" and" C" Companies under 
hea vy shelling and machine-gun fire debouched from the 
town and took up a position in the old French trenches 
of the Somme battlefields. 
The Battalion had three Tanks allotted to it. The 
Tank officers ,vere in position ready to assist but they 'were 
not clear as to their orders or the situation. Yet in that 
stout, stoical manner so characteristic of the Tank force, 
knO'wing that the usual dirty,vork was ahead, they pushed 
off in search of the enemy. The big, lumbering, awkward 
machines follo'wed their officers out of the town at 2.00 
p.m. ambling along like faithful prehistoric monsters. 
One of the Tanks 'was knocked out at the outset b

anti-tank gun firing at almost point-blank range. .A.n- 
other was put out of action later but the third fought 
all day and assisted in clearing the to'wn of Folies. 
Although the companies had not sufficient time to 
assemble and examine the ground, they adyanced by 
sectional rushes with the tanks into the attack. They 
had to cross a broad high plateau scarified by old trenches 
and with a single-track railway running north and 
south, half-way beh'
een Ie Quesnel and Folies. As 
soon as they left the trenches they were subjected to 
hea vy machine gun fire from the railway and enfilade fire 
froln a 'wood on the southern flank. By 2.10 p.m. the 
first of the attacking troops had reached the railway. 
At 2.35 p.m. "C" Company was reported advancing 
slowly over the railway and the enemy retiring but 
fighting stubbornl
T. Some of the 1st Brigade side- 
slipped south about 400 yards and after considerable 
confusion regained direction and kept in touch ,vith "C" 
Company. On the right ' A" Company under l\Iajor 
Sifton had a similar experience. At one point ,vhere they 
were held up by a particularly obstreperous machine-gun, 
a Tank came along and put the gun out of action and 
the attack continued. They also found part of the 1st 
Brigade crossing their front diagonally and advancing 
on Folies. :\lajor Sifton, taking his company around the 
south of Folies, was telnporarily checked by an anti- 
Tank gun firing point-blank. Fortunately its shells were 
ricochetting froln the ground in front and bursting in the 
air, doing no damage. Two Lewis guns engaged the 
gun and forced it to retire. Lieutenant 'Yreyford, al- 
though ,younded at the railway, carried on and at 4.20 
p.m. was in a similar position to ".A," Company on the 
north of the village and was advancing on it. 
"B" Company which had taken over the vacated 
assembly positions of the attacking troops, moved forward 
and closed in for the final assault on the village. Bat- 
talion Headquarters left Ie Quesnel and went into shelters 
further forward, the reserve company going with Head- 
quarters. .A..t this tilne Lieutenant Inch of the Field 
Artillery arrived with two field guns and got his guns 
into position to support the attack.

The capture of the town followed. One platoon of the 
left company went around the north of Folies, one platoon 
through the town, the remainder skirmishing and 
clearing out some of the enemy who were fighting from 
old gun-pits. lVlajor Sifton, who had worked his com- 
pany around the south of the town, sent a platoon under 
Lieutenant F. W. Rous to enfilade the enemy who was 
retiring from the north-eastern end of the village. Lieu- 
tenant Rous successfully cut off the force which was the 
size of two platoons and although shot through the left 
lung remained with his men and directed the work of 
consolidation. For this devotion to duty he was awarded 
the lVlilitary Cross. By 5.00 p.m. the Battalion had 
reached its objective and was consolidating in a trench 
with the 5th C. lVl. R. on the right and the 1st Division 
on the left. At 7.15 p.m. Battalion Headquarters moved 
further forward, and all settled down for the night. 
There was some rather harassing fire during the night 
from what appeared to be two batteries of field guns and 
some howitzers, but otherwise the companies were undis- 
turbed. 
Throughout this whole action lVlajor Sjfton was a 
tower of strength. He was the senior officer with the 
fighting troops and took command, not only of his own 
company but of others which had lost their leaders. He 
saved many casualties by making a personal reconnais- 
sance of the jumping-off positions before the attack and 
"during the advance of about four kilometres under 
heavy machine-gun fire he directed the attack of his 
company and when two company commanders became 
casualties he assumed command of the attacking com- 
panies and directed the organization of the Battalion 
outpost line.. His absolute disregard for his personal 
safety and his skill and initiative were a splendid example 
to all ranks and contributed largely to the success of the 
attack." He received the Distinguished Service Order 
for his outstanding work on this day. 
The Battalion lost their Chaplain, Captain W. H. 
Davis and also Lieutenant A. D. McDonald who had 
been 'with the 4th C. 1\1. R. almost two 
rears. Captain

L. B. Bumstead and Lieutenants F. H. Paull and F. \V. 
Rous were wounded. 
\.mongst the ranks ,vere twelve 
killed and sixty-two wounded. The Battalion was credited 
with taking three German officers and 123 other ranks, 
:;ts weU as many trophies, from machine guns and saddle 
horses to one complete pigeon-loft containing 300 pigeons. 
Every officer and man mourned for their beloved 
Padre. He came from \Vestern Canada but he had 
retained his Irish heart and Celtic charm. If he kne,v 
what fear was he never sho,ved it. His remarkable dis- 
regard for danger ,vhile carrying out ,,
hat he considered 
his duty, became a regimental tradition. In the daily 
life of the Battalion, in billets or in trenches he was always 
thinking of the men's welfare. On this day as on former 
occasions he was preparing to carry out his practical 
mission of mercy and was gathering around him his little 
band of stretcher-bearers when he and one of his men 
were hit by a shell. No officer was more loved for his 
character or more admired for his bra very than Padre Da vis. 
On the morning of the 10th at 8.15 o'clock the 32nd 
Imperial Division advanced * through the 4th C. 1\1. R. 
and attacked, driving the enemy out of range. The 
Battalion remained in these positions for a ,veek. On 
the 13th it received orders to go through the 7th Brigade, 
but this did not materialize. On the 14th an order to 
relieve the 49th Battalion of the 7th Brigade north of 
ParviUers was countermanded. Also on the 15th orders 
came intimating that the Canadian Corps would resume 
the offensive in conjunction with the Australians and the 
French. All these ,vere canceUed although great prepar- 
ations had been made. The Battalion, when not making 
hurried preparations for a move, improved its positions 
and enjoyed as much as possible the warm summer weather. 
From the 10th to the 16th, while the Battalion was 
waiting at Folies in a state of readiness, the Canadian 
Corps kept up its pressure until the task became too 
costly and unprofitable. The enemy was rapidly regain- 
ing his strength and reinforcing his thinned line with 
fresh reserves. General Currie decided not to make 


· The advance was approximately 1,700 yards.

unnecessary sacrifices and calJed a halt after a few more 
attempts. He reported: 
I considered that it was inadvisable to try to progress mainly bv 
Infantry fighting, and recommended that operations should be slack- 
ened to give time to organize a set piece attack on a broad front. I 
further suggested that rather than expose the Canadian Corps to losses 
without adequate results it should be withdrawn from the front, rested 
for a few days, and used to make another surprise attack in the direction 
of Bapaume. 
As a result the Second and Third Divisions started their 
move to the First Army. The First Diyision relieved the 
Third. The 1st Brigade relieved the 8th and the Bat- 
talion moved back to an orchard behind Ie Quesnel, in 
preparation for the general move to a new sector. 
The work of the Canadian Corps in the memorable 
battle was finished. Again it had made history for itself 
and Canada. The casualties* had been light and it was 
still a very efficient fighting machine, to be moved 
secretly to another sector for fresh adventure and further 
successes. 
General Rawlinson sent the following message to the 
Canadian Corps on August 16th: 


I desire to place on record my sincere appreciation of the conspic- 
uous and highly successful part played by the Canadian Corps in the 
battle of August 8th. The task allotted to them was not easy, especially 
on the right where the initial attack of the 3rd Canadian Division was 
delivered under especial difficulties. 
The need for secrecy, which necessitated the assembly of the 
whole Corps, including the heavy artillery, by night in an area pre- 
viously unknown to them, enhanced the difficulties, especially when 
the front line had of necessity to be held by other troops. 
The determination with which all obstacles were overcome, the 
dash and gallantry with which the assault WRoS delivered, and the 
precision with which each advance was made exactly on scheduled time, 
reflect the highest credit both on the staff arrangements and the fine 
fighting spirit of all units which took part in the operation. 
The three points which seem to me to deserve the highest commend- 
ation are the splendid gallantry of the infantry, the skill and hard work 
in "getting in" the artillery (both heavy artiHery and field artillery) 
on the nights preceding the battle, and the energy and drive in pushing 
forward mobile artillery immediately the enemy front line had been 
broken. 
The general control and direction of the battle by Corps, Divisional 
and Brigade Staffs were admirable and enabled the whole programme 
to be carried through in its entirety without a hitch; this is in itself 
the highest praisQ that can be given. 
I congratulate the Canadian Corps as a whole and offer them my 
warmest thanks for their very fine performance. 


· The casualties were light in comparison with the number of troops engaged, 
but the casualties of the Canadian Corps were 11,725, all ranks. 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 


The next day General Ralvlinson forwarded the follow- 
ing message in a Special Order of the day: 
To General Sir H. S. Rawlinson, Bt., G.C. V.O., K.C.B., K.C.M.G., 
Commanding Fourth Army. 
My warmest congratulations and thanks to yourself, your Staff, 
and all ranks under your command for the magnificent success recently 
gained by the Fourth Army. The brilliant manner in which the oper- 
ation was prepared and successfully carried out, with comparatively 
small losses, by the II!., Australian and Canadian Corps in conjunction 
with the Cavalry Corps, R.A.F. and Tank Corps, pays striking tribute 
to the skill of the leaders of all ranks and the bra'"ery of the individual 
soldier, as well as to the high state of efficiency of the staffs and depart- 
mental services concerned. The gallant and skilful co-operation of the 
armoured cars and motor machine-gun batteries is worthy of the highest 
praise. Please convey to all ranks my appreciation and thanks.

August 17th, 1918. Commander-in-Chiej, British Arnn"es in France. 


On August 19th the Battalion was warned that it 
would move the next night with the Brigade to an area 
to be notified later. l\Ioving by night, and to an unknown 
destination, suggested another mystery. The men were 
getting used to this sort of thing. Nothing surprised 
them any longer and they rather took delight in these 
tactical enigmas. In the evening of the 20th they 
climbed into forty-six charabancs and started in the 
direction of Amie
s. It was a beautiful night and the 
ride was like a sight-seeing tour across the recently won 
ground. They turned north from Amiens to'ward Doul- 
lens, rolling along the route-nation ale, singing the latest 
songs from the Inusic-halls and in evident good spirits. 
Theyhadnever left a recent battlefield in such splendid trim. 
Froln Doullens they turned north-east about five miles to 
Lucheux, where, at 2 a.m. on August 21st, the conyoy 
stopped. A Staff Captain loomed up in the moonlight 
with fresh orders. The Battalion deb used and Inarched 
about three miles in the same direction to HUlnbercourt. 
The men "were in their billets by 4.30 a.m., but not for 
long; by 8.30 p.m. they were on their ,vay to 'Yarluzel, 
a Inile or so north. On the 22nd they were again on the 
move, marching to Lignereuil in the cool of the night 
through fresh, verdant farm-country over good roads 
under a full harvest moon. Lignereuil lay between the 
village of Berlencourt, ,vhere they had stopped in their

march from the Somme, and Manin, another village they 
had enjoyed on the way to the Mercatel sector. They 
learned that they were" for the line" and with a day's 
rest they were transported by buses to the outskirts of 
Arras. 
ARRAS 
The Second Battles of Arras, 1918*, which opened on 
August 26th and lasted nine days followed the Second 
Ba ttles of the SOInlne. The la tter cOlnrnenced on August 
21st and included the Battle of Albert and the Second 
Battle of Bapaume, \vhich commenced August 31st. 
The northern boundary of this attack was about five 
miles south of Arras and parallel with the river Scarpe. 
North of this boundary Genera] Horne's First Army was 
holding the line. 'Yhile the Battle for Bapaume was in 
progress, Sir Douglas Haig decided to extend his front 
as far north as the river Scarpe and drive a wedge into 
the German line on his northern flank. For this the Can- 
adians were chosen. They replaced the XVII Corps of 
the First ArIny, which ,vas holding the ground south of 
the Scarpe and fought between the First and Third 
Armies in the first stage of the advance on Calnbrai. 
The Second and Third Canadian Divisions went into 
the line. The 8th Brigade relieved the 46th Imperial 
Brigade, the 17th Cyclist Battalion and the Life Guards 
Machine Gun Battalion on the night of August 23rd-24th. 
The 4th C. 1\1. R. relieved a composite force of Cyclists 
and Life Guards in front of Feuchy about three miles 
west of Arras. In the early morning of the 24th, the 
enemy, evidently suspecting a relief or concentration of 
troops, shelled the left company in and in front of Feuchy 
with "yellow-cross". gas shells and H.E. shrapnel. 
Five officers-Lieutenants A. Cameron, C. E. Kormann, 
A. Laidla\v, T. J. Rutherford, J. L. Yule-and 116 men 
became casualties froIn this bombardment. It seriously 
crippled the Company \vhich had to be reorganized and 
reinforced from the rear. 
The Brigade was ordered to attack the enemy's

positions between the Arras-Cambrai road and the River 
Scarpe. On the north of the river the 51st Imperial Di- 
vision, known as the Highland Division, with probably 
the most enviable reputation in the Army, was supporting 
the attack. The 4th C. M. R. was again on the left of 
the Corps \vith its northerly flank at the river; the 2nd 
C. 1\1. R. in the centre and the 5th C. 1\1. R. on the right 
next to the road. The 1st C. 1\1. R. was to pass through 
the 2nd and 4th C. l\f. R. battalions and attack Monchy- 
le-Preux-the same Monchy which impeded an advance 
in a former battle in front of Arras. The Battalion was 
disposed \vÏth "c" Company on the left, "B" Company 
on the right, "A" Company in support and "D" Com- 
pany in reserve. "D" Company ,vas originally intended 
to be the left front company but on account of the casual- 
ties it was brought back into reserve and replaced by 
"C" Company. 
All preparations were made for an attack on the 25th. 
The officers had little opportunity to acquaint themselves 
".ith the ground and there was some doubt as to the 
exact location of the enemy. One platoon of "C" 
Company was sent out on the night of the 24th to get 
in touch with the enemy and to occupy any trenches 
available for jumping-off. This platoon found some 
trenches that had been evacuated and occupied them. 
The attack did not take place on the 25th as expected 
but was postponed to 4.50 a.m. on the 26th; later zero 
hour ,vas moved forward to 8.00 a.m. About midnight a 
light, steady rain began to fall as the companies assembled 
for the attack. By 2.30 a.m. all were in position. The 
two attacking companies were in front of the wire east 
of "Ionian" Trench, the support company in "Ionian" 
and "Iceland" Trenches \vith the reserve company in 
the vicinity of "Broken Lane." 
The barrage was strong and accurate and gave heart 
to the men as they \vent "over the top" at zero hour, 
the flashes from the guns, the blinding brightness of the 
flares, and the sudden lightning-cracks from the high- 
explosives increased the bewilderment of the darkness. 
The impedimenta of wire and old trenches which sprang

into view with each artificial glare added to the difficulties 
of keeping up with the creeping-barrage. It ,vas fortu- 
nate for the left company that they could not get on too 
quickly because the machine-gun barrage of the 152nd 
Brigade over the river was s\veeping across the flank. 
As it was it caused several casualties. Lieutenant .A. N. 
Bro,vn, who had joined but a week, unfortunately was 
killed in this way. 
For the first 400 yards there was little opposition, then 
hea vy machine-gun fire came from "Indian Trench" 
and from the Arras-Douai Railway along the river valley. 
Here Captain H. C. Rounds, commanding" A" Company, 
was killed. By reason of this fire the companies 'vere 
forced to slow up and reorganize. The support company 
pushed forward to reinforce them, and a fresh assault 
was made. " Indian" and "Italian" trenches on the 
right \vere taken but the left ,vas again held up. At 
5.35 a.m. the reserve company arrived at "Indian" 
trench and the officer commanding" D" Company organ- 
ized an attack along the river bank and cleared up the 
situation on that flank. It was not long until the Bat- 
talion had reached all its objectives. By 6.30 a.m. the 
right \yas in touch with the 2nd C. 1\1. R and the left 
reported that all was clear to the riyer. At 7.00 a.m. 
the advanced Headquarters was moved forward and 
within forty-five minutes the rear area ,vas entirely 
cleared, the companies were occupying" Italian," "John- 
son," "J unker " and " Lancer" trenches and the 1 st 
C. 1\f. R. passed through on the right. 
From Feuchy to l\Ionchy there was a rapid rise of 
sixty feet up Orange Hill. The advance of the 4th and 
2nd C. 1\1. R. Battalions was along the low ground by 
the river around Orange Hill. The 2nd C. 1\f. R. turned 
partly south and attacked from the north while the 1st 
C. 1\1. R. \vent through the 4th C. M. R. and attacked 
south on =.\Ionchy from a northerly re-entrant. At the 
same time the 5th C. M. R. made a frontal attack on the 
spur and l\Ionchy was taken. 
At 7.55 a.m. the Brigade ordered the Battalion to assist 
the 1st C. 1\1. R. Colonel Patterson sent" D" Company 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 


under Captain E. A. Steer to get in touch 'with them and 
ordered the remaining companies to re-assemble and 
prepare to push forward to give every possible assistance. 
At noon Captain Steer reported that he \vas occupying 
"\Yelford" and "Bayonet" trenches, had driven out the 
enemy machine-gun posts near the river and was in touch 
with the 1st C. 1\1. R. Battalion. 
At 1.10 p.m. the Commanding Officer ordered his 
companies to move forward into closer support to the 
firing line. The 7th Brigade's attack had started at 
9.80 a.m., passing through the 8th Brigade and attacking 
on a line running south from Pelves. On account of a 
bend in the Scarpe the 49th Battalion passed a little to the 
south of the 4th C. 1\1. R. and the only evidence that it 
had advanced was the lively action in the valley by Pelves 
in front of Jig Saw \Yood. 
Up to this time the shelling had not been severe and 
the general resistance weaker than anticipated. There was 
more shelling after the Battalion had reached its objec- 
tives. The enemy appeared to have adopted a new 
scheme of defence by withdrawing his men to a second 
line and making a stand there, relying on strong machine- 
gun positions to allay the original assault and disorganize 
the attacking troops. He had a concentration of guns 
on the heights behind 1\fonchy and with these laid down 
a heavy fire throughout the area during most of the day. 
At 4.15 p.m. the companies had just been reorganized 
and allotted to different trenches \vhen the Brigade 
ordered the Battalion to support the 49th Battalion on the 
left flank of the 7th Brigade. It was found on recon- 
noitring that to move forward would mean occupying 
practically the same trenches as the 49th and probably 
would cause a confusion in commands. So it \vas arrang- 
ed behveen the commanding officers that the Battalion 
remain \vhere it was. "A" Company was in "Junker" 
trench, "B" and "C" Companies in "Jamaica" and 
"Johnston" trenches and "D" Company in "\Velford" 
and "Bayonet" trenches with advanced posts in touch with 
the 1st C.l\l. R. The Battalion remained in this position 
without incident during that night and the day of the 27th.

130 4TH CANADIAN 1\10UNTED RIFLES 
In the evening of the 27th the Battalion ,vas 'warned 
by telephone to be prepared to relieve the 43rd Battalion. 
An advance party of all companies under l\Iajor W. V. 
Sifton was sent forward to reconnoitre the 43rd Battal- 
ion's position. 'Yhile the party was away the orders 
were changed. A further advance 'vas anticipated for 
August 28th and the 43rd Battalion ,vas placed under 
orders of the 8th Brigade and the 4th C. 1\1. R. under 
the 9th Brigade. Consequently the party ,vas sent back 
and rejoined at 6.00 a.m. on the 28th. Orders had been 
received an hour before from the 9th Brigade stating 
that the 3rd Division would continue the advance and 
that the 9th Brigade ,vould attack that morning. The 
4th C. M. R. and the 52nd Battalions were detailed to 
attack on the right and left respectively and capture 
the enemy trenches south of Boiry. The 4th C. 1\1. R. 
was to s,ving a portion of the Battalion to the right and 
form a flank on the Cojeul River until the attack of the 
8th Brigade, which was timed for one and a half hours 
later than the 9th Brigade attack, matured. 
Zero hour was set for 11.00 a.m. on the 28th. The 
companies started some time before to get to their assem- 
bly positions. Major Sifton's party,vhich had returned 
at 6.00 a.m. was thoroughly fatigued but had to turn 
around and join the assaulting troops. The march to 
the front was particularly trying; the men had to go about 
6,000 yards oYer difficult ground which was being shelled 
continuously. The companies were given their orders; 
"c" Company ,vas to attack on the right \vith its flank 
on the Cojeul River and "B" Company on the left with 
its left flank on the to,vn of Boiry. They were ordered 
to penetrate a distance of 2,000 yards on a 1,200 yard 
front. "D" Company was to move in close support to 
" C" Company, assisting it and at the same time making 
good the right flank on the Cojeul River. " A" Company 
was to be in reserve and move in the rear of "B" Com- 
pany. 
Owing to the difficulties of the ground and to the fact 
that the enemy had observed the movement of several 
battalions and had opened a heavy barrage, only "C" 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 


and "D" companies reached their assembly positions 
before our barrage came do,vn. The company com- 
manders seeing that there 'was no time to \vait for the 
original battle order seized the initiative and s\vung 
their companies into the' breach, "C" Company taking 
the place of "B" Company in the left attack, and "D" 
Company nlaking the right attack. They moved forward 
behind the barrage and the other companies came up in 
support although losing heavily under the enemy's bar- 
rage. In spite of these handicaps the For\vard Observing 
Officer reported that the attack ,vas progressing favour- 
ably. 
At 12.30 p.m. messages from the front line started to 
reach Battalion Headquarters. Captain Steer, com- 
manding "D" Company, returned wounded 'with sixtj" 
prisoners ,vhich his company had captured and reported 
that the attackers 'were proceeding to their final objec- 
tive. A.:\t 1.20 p.m. a further report from the right 
attacking company stated that their right flank was on 
the Cojeul River and that they were suffering from 
machine-gun fire. Later they asked for artillery to be 
turned on Cigarette Copse and on Long Wood, which 
'were full of machine-guns. Also a field gun had their 
range and was firing over open sights from the corner of 
the wood. This hostile concentration ,vas promptly 
broken up by our artillery. At 4.10 p.m. all companies 
reported that they were holding "Lady Lane" and sup- 
port trenches and were in touch on the left with the 52nd 
Battalion and elements of the 116th Battalion and 58th 
Battalion which had come up. 
The Battalion was very grateful to a Battery of 
the 52nd Brigade Artillery which reported to the 
Battalion's Headquarters and gave excellent support by 
keeping down enemy machine-guns. The work of the 
Battery was most commendable. The speed with which 
it got into action in a forward position was responsible 
for the breaking up of the enemy fonna tions and for the 
destruction of obstacles ,vhich were impeding the advance. 
By sundown the situation had become nonnal. The 
Battalion had taken all its objectives and after consolida-

ting, spent the evening cleaning up the new positions. 
It was relieved by the Somerset Light Infantry, the 
relief being completed at 5.30 a.m. on the 29th and the 
Battalion marched back to Arras. Another important 
battle was over. One more nick had been made in the 
German line by the Canadians. 
The Battalion lost more heavily at Arras than at 
Amiens although both battles were very similar. The 
reason for the larger casualty list was due to the double 
engagement. On ,..\.ugust 26th Captain II. C. Rounds, 
Lieutenant A. N. Brown and nine other ranks ,vere killed, 
Lieutenant R. ,Yo 'Yarnica and seventy-three other ranks 
,vounded. On August 28th Captain J. 1\1. Dobie and 
thirteen other ranks were killed and Captain E. _\.. Steer, 
Lieutenants T. P. Philips, R. l\Iitchell, ,Yo H. Pfeffer, H. 
G. Davidson, E. Y.1\IclVlillan, J. B. Davies, C. F. Pashler, 
A. B. Cockburn, F. C. Thomson, P. 'Yright and 141 other 
ranks were wounded. Lieutenant P. 'Yright subse- 
quently died of his ,vounds. 
After a day and night of ,veIl-earned rest the Battalion 
left Arras for Lattre-St. Quentin, a little village near 
A vesnes-Ie Comte and not far from l\ianin, a district to 
which the men were becoming accustomed. The month 
of August, 1918, ,vas probably the most interesting month 
the Battalion experienced. Other months stood out 
against the background of ,var; disastrous months like 
June, 1916, or costly conquests as in October, 1916, on the 
Sommeand October, 1917, at Passchendaele, but this month 
was one to remember. The Regiment had been from 
one end of the British line to the other and back again 
through four Armies, the ,vhole time partaking of the 
sweet cup of victory. 
The Battle of Arras was continued for a \veek after 
the Battalion left the line. The Drocourt-Quéant line 
was broken on September 2nd and the Germans fell back 
to the main Hindenburg Line. The direction of the 
attack was kept on the Arras-Cambrai road until the 
advance ,vas within six miles of Cambrai. The First 
Army captured nearly 19,000 prisoners and 200 guns. 
The Battalion's share on August 26th had been six

officers and 225 other ranks as ,veIl as four field guns, 
numerous machine-guns and trench mortars; on the 28th, 
four officers and 234 other ranks besides two field guns 
and twenty-six light and heavy machine-guns. During 
the continuation of this battle, the Battalion returned 
from the Army Reserve area to Arras where repatriated 
civilians were already re-establishing themselves, scratch- 
ing amongst the ruins of their homes or opening little 
shops to trade \vith the troops. 
On September 6th the men moved to 'Tis-en-Artois in 
Divisional Reserve. It ,vas on the Arras-Cambrai road 
at the intersection of the Cojeul River and just south of 
the position of the Battalion in the action of August 28th. 
They \vere not out of range of the enemy's guns which 
continually shelled the village. On September 10th 
l\lajor-General Lipsett visited the Battalion before leaving 
to command the 4th Imperial Division. The men were 
paraded and the General addressed them: 


I have just received an order this morning to rf'port to the 4th Impe- 
rial Division. I cannot express to you the great disappointment. I feel on 
being forced to leave the Third Canadian Division which I have com- 
manded for two years and three months. J am seizing this opportunity 
of saying "Good-bye" to the 8th Brigade and to the 4th C. M. R. 
Battalion, all my associations with whöm have been the most pleasant 
of my life. 
The 8th Brigade have always covered themselves with distinction, 
at Mount Sorrel and from there to the Somme, where General Byng 
informed me that the 8th Brigade was one of the finest in the Army. 
At Vimy you distinguished yourselves; at Passchendaele you made 
the hole through which the 9th Brigade was able to pass through and 
capture Bellevue Spur. These actions came to a climax in the three 
recent actions, at Amiens and in front of Arras. 
You have always done your bit. more than willingly and with a 
spirit that guaranteed success. I have in my two years and three 
months' command always done my utmost to help you and I wish to 
express my deep gratitudf' to you for the manner in which you carried 
on under my command. 


Colonel Patterson replied for the Battalion and led 
the men in three hearty cheers. It ,vas a great shock to 
everyone to learn ,vithin a month, on October 15th, this 
popular General and brave soldier had been killed com- 
manding his new Division. l\Iajor-General F. O. ,Yo Loomis 
took over the command of the Third Canadian Division. 
On September 11th the Battalion moved into the front 
support line and relieved the 58th Ba ttalion of the

Fourth Division, in the villages of Recourt, Saudemont 
and Écourt St. Quentin, nearer Cambrai now than A.rras. 
The Battalion ,vas a ,veek in this forward area suffering 
from counter-battery shelling until relieved by the 8th 
Middlesex battalion; then it marched back to Vis-en- 
Artois for a day before leaving for another sector. The 
Battle of Arras was burnt out and the still greater Batt!e 
of Cambrai was preparing. 


CAMBRAI 
A month, almost to the day after the start of the 
Battle of Arras, the Battle of Cambrai-St.Quentin com- 
menced. Since the first successes of the counter-offen- 
sive in August, the Higher Command had been doing 
everything in its power to exploit these successes and 
reach again the Hindenburg Line. At last the British 
and French had the Germans back in their last line of 
permanent defences along the Canal du Nord. The 
French ,vere at the gates of St. Quentin and were pressing 
from there southward. The British were back approxim- 
ately to the line they held prior to l\Iarch 21st, 1918. 
The First, Third and Fourth Armies attacked on a 
thirty mile front, roughly from the junction of the Sensée 
and Hirondelle Rivers, east of Arras to St. Quentin. 
Thirty-five Divisions were employed besides Cavalry, 
Tanks and other arms. l\Iore troops ,vere used than in 
any other battle of the Last Hundred Days but much 
less ground ,vas gained in comparison. 'Vhat was gained, 
however, was of the utmost importance. The Canal du 
Nord was crossed and the Hindenburg Line pierced. 
The Germans were determined to hold this last great 
fortified line, but Sir Douglas Haig knew that if there 
was any delay in striking "the struggle might still be 
protracted over the winter." Both sides fought des- 
perately; it was really the death struggle. 
The ten days of bitter fighting fell into three phases: 
(1) the storming of the Canal du Nord and the advance on 
Cambrai; (2) the great blow which shattered the IIin- 
denburg Line and turned the defences of St. Quentin; 
(3) the development of these successes by a general 



THE LAST HUKDRED DAYS 


attack on the whole front which broke through the last 
of the German defences in the rear of the Hindenburg 
Line forcing the enemy to evacuate Cambrai and St. 
Quentin and fall back on the line of the River Selle. 
The Canadian Corps was again employed under the 
First Army on the left of the general attack and in a 
\vay similar to the Battle of Arras with this difference- 
instead of continuing to attack in a south-easterly direc- 
tion parallel to and north of the Arras-Cambrai road, 
the Corps operated in a north-easterly direction parallel 
to and north of the BapatlIne-Cambrai road. The 
ultimate objectives were to secure the bridge-heads over 
the ScheIdt Canal, from Cambrai north, and to form a de- 
fensive flank for the Third Army attack south of Cambrai. 
This was not the first time that Canadians had been 
involved in an attack on Cambrai. On November 20th, 
1917, when the Canadian Cavalry Brigade joined in 
General Byng's Third Army surprise attack, a squadron 
of the Fort Garry Horse had crossed the Canal south of 
Cambrai and alone had galloped "into the blue," scup- 
pering four 3-inch guns and sabreing a few Germans. 
They fought their way back on foot through l\lasnières 
and rejoined their regiment. Lieutenant Strachan, who 
led this Squadron, won the \Tictoria Cross for his daring 
exploi t. 
The Battle cOlnmenced on Septelnber 27th, 1918. 
The First and Fourth Divisions attacking froln a line 
through l\Iæuvres, six miles west of Cambrai, took 
Bourlon 'Y ood, and the :\Iarcoing system of trenches 
west of Cambrai. On the second day the Third Division 
joined, s'\yinging north-east with the First and Fourth 
Divisions to seize the bridge-heads over the Escaut 
Canal. This second day's task developed into days of 
the most severe fighting. The 4th C. 1\1. It was in 
reserve until the very end of the struggle but had the 
distinction of being the first to enter Cambrai. 
Prior to this battle, on September 20th, the Battalion 
marched to Croisilles where it entrained and rode back 
over the old battlefields on the recently reconstructed 
railway into a rest area at Simencourt behind Arras.

The men did a certain amount of training and were re- 
equipped for further fighting. They stayed there until 
September 26th and then marched to 'Yanquetin. It 
was intended that they should go by train to Bullecourt, 
about six miles behind the line, but one section of the 
newly-laid track had spread and they had to detrain at 
Boisleux-au-l\lont at the junction of the main Arras- 
Albert raihvay. After lnarching across the disabled 
portion to Boisleux St. l\Iaré they entrained for Croisilles, 
arriving at 11.00 p.m. The orders ".ere to march forward 
immediatel
T to an "area" behind the 7th Brigade. It 
was a pitch-black night and raining. The Germans 
'were shelling with a high-velocity gun and causing a few 
casualties which did not add to the cOlnfort of the march. 
They arrived at 4.00 a.m. in the" area", 'which, as usual 
on such occasions, was merely a map-reference. Like 
many other "areas" this was a piece of old" Ko-l\Ian's- 
Land" filled with every variety of wire and dishevelled 
trench. 
By 5.20 a.m. the Brigade had just arrived when the 
Fourth Army attack began. As the advance progressed the 
Battalion went forward. At noon it marched to another 
"area" just east of lnchy where the Fourth Division had 
jumped-off in the morning. The Transport followed 
arriving at 8.00 p.m. and a hot meal was served. The 
men were ordered to "stand to" ready to move on a 
moment's notice but they 'were not disturbed and at 7.00 
p.m. had orders to remain where they were for the night. 
Meanwhile the attack of the First and Fourth Divisions 
had been a most successful one. The Fourth Division 
on the right had passed beyond Bourlon \Vood and was 
strenuously engaged at Fontaine. The First Division 
had even greater success and at nightfall 'was be
Tond 
Haynecourt. The tl\YO Divisions had advanced about 
five miles. 
At 6.00 a.m. on the 28th the Battalion lIloved again to 
a new position just ,vest of Bourlon \Y ood, remaining 
there during that day and part of the night of the 28th- 
29th. The Third Division had gone into the fight but 
the Battalion ,yas still in reserve. The defence was

tightening, and the whole of the 28th ,vas a day of the 
most severe fighting. The Canadians were trying to 
,york around the north of Cambrai and seize the bridge- 
heads across the canal while the Third Army did the 
same to the south. For the Germans to retain the bridge- 
heads and hold Calnbrai, a key position, meant the stem- 
ming of the British tidal advance. For us it meant 
breaking into the open, green country; rolling back the 
enemy ,yhere he had no longer wire and prepared trenches; 
and forcing him to retire all along the line. The British 
were fighting desperately for a decision. The Third 
Division was thrown in and ordered to s,ving north-east 
with the First and Fourth Diyisions across the Douai 
road and railway down to the canal and seize the crossings. 
It was done but not on the 28th, 29th or 30th, or ,vith 
the rush that the orders implied. The fighting ,vas 
desperate, the losses were terrible. Every yard \vas won 
after a battle and it took a 'week of this fighting before 
the high ground over the canal was reached and the 
Germans, not being able to "stand the gaff," broke under 
the strain. 
.At 3.00 a.m. on the 29th, the Battalion was ordered 
forward toward Cambrai. En route a 'written operation 
order was receiyed that the Battalion was to support the 
1st and 2nd C. :\1. R. Battalions which ,vere attacking 
between St. Olie and Xeuville St. Remy ,vith their 
northerly boundary the Douai-Cambrai road and the 
southerly the .Arras-Calnbrai road. The 5th C. 1\1. R. 
Battalion was in reserve. The Battalion moved by 
congested roads into the trenches of the l\Iarcoing sys- 
tem and kept in touch ,yith the attacking troops. The 
Germans laid down a barrage ,vhich killed one officer and 
two men and wounded eight others. Unfortunately 
Lieutenant E. Rule, who joined as a private after Sanc- 
tuary 'Vood and was granted a commission in the Field, 
was killed. 
The Battalion was in the l\Iarcoing Line at 7.00 a.m. 
on the 29th. There was a heavy ground mist and had 
it not been for this protection, the casualties would have 
been greater as the enemy ,vas occupying in strength

trenches ,vhich ,vere only 800 yards distant and ,vas also 
in the Marcoing Line on the right. In fact the 58th 
Battalion was having difficulty in getting into position 
and was heavily counter-attacked. The Battalion threw 
out a protective flank but was not called upon to assist. 
The Unit remained in these positions until the night of 
October 2nd-3rd when two companies took up a position 
in the first line of resistance in the Brigade defence line; 
on the next night the Battalion relieved the 2nd C. }\tI. R. 
in the front line. Twice during this donnant period the 
Battalion expected to attack and assist in the seizure of 
bridge-heads on the Escaut Canal but the general situ- 
a tion was not ripe. Froln the 4th until the 9th there 
was another lull, ,yaiting for the storm to break again on 
Cambrai. Meantime, to the north, ground was changing 
hands every hour. The Battalion had the good fortune 
to have a more quiet sector on the outskirts of Calnbrai 
and under the lee of its protection. At no time was there 
any attempt made to assault the city itself, the plan 
being to go around it and cut it off. Consequently the 
Brigade front was comparatively quiet and the men 
were occupied in preparing defensive positions in case 
the enemy made a sally from the city. 
During this period support and reserve companies were 
living in what had fonnerly been an enemy ammunition 
dump. Some Inen had ferreted into shell shelters and 
othel
s had cover adjacent to a cordite dump. During 
the evening of October 5th there was intermittent shelling 
but about 2.00 a.m. on the 6th the enemy threw salvo 
after salvo into the support area and set on fire a large 
dUlnp in front of "B" Company's Headquarters. Then 
the cordite dump in front of "A" Company Head- 
quarters caught fire. Everyone fled without ,vaiting 
for personal treasures; it was the part of ,visdonl for in 
a few minutes there was an enormous explosion. The 
dump" ,vent up," blowing a crater seventy feet wide and 
thirty feet deep \vhere the hurriedly vacated billets had 
been. It was estimated that the enemy 
hre'v over 500 
shells into these two companies; despite this and the 
explosion there ,vas not a single casualty.

THE LAST HUKDRED DAYS 


On October 8th the Battalion was told the plan of 
attack for the 9th. The Third Army was attacking 
south of Cambrai and if they were successful the 2nd 
Canadian Diyision on the north of Cambrai was to cross 
the canal, hold the bridge-heads and join with the Third 
Arinv east of Cambrai. The Second Division was not 
to advance until the Third Army had gained the high 
ground in the neighborhood of A \voingt. The 8th 
Brigade was to co-operate ,vith the 2nd Division attack 
on the right flank; the 4th C. 1\1. R. to advance to the 
Canal, clean up a few strong posts and secure the bridge- 
heads across the Canal. If the Second Division and 8th 
Brigade were successful the relnainder of the Third 
Division was to follow and secure the town and the 
ground to the east until ne,v bridges could be constructed. 
The Battalion was lying to the immediate north-west 
of Cambrai with the Canal between-a formidable ob- 
sta
le, with steep banks and considerable ,vater. The 
Engineers \vere to move up pontoon bridges, tubular 
trestle bridges, ladders, and plank and cork floats to 
cross the canal. The attack was to take place on the 
9th at 0130, or 1.30 a.m. (The continental manner of 
expressing the tilne was adopted throughout the Arlny 
on October 1st). It was an unusual hour to attack, but 
it was a clear cool autulnn night and the reflections from 
fires burning in Cambrai lighted the sky. 
The attacks of the Second Division and the Third 
Army were so successful that there is nothing to narrate 
beyond the fact that the German defence snapped and 
the reaction to the tension of the last ten days meant a 
sudden burst into the territory beyond Cambrai. At 
1.30 a.m. "C" Company attacked and within an hour all 
objectives ,vere reached. At daybreak the Battalion 
crossed the Canal, passed through the city and by 8.00 
a.m. 'was established on the eastern outskirts of Cambrai, 
in touch with the 5th C. 
I. R. on the right and the 26th 
Battalion on the left. There were no casualties during 
the attack and the only serious opposition was met 
wh ile crossing the Canal. 
The Battalion who were the first in Cambrai saw ho,v

140 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 
a city could look after occupation by the Gerlnans. 
The houses 'were in a filthy condition and on ever
y side 
were evidences of looting and pillaging. The scenes in 
Cambrai before it was evacuated can be pictured by the 
official statement of a German prisoner: 


Bavarian and Prussian troops recently came to blows over their 
loot, with the result that one officer and fifteen Prussians were killed. 
The officer was thrown from the third floor of a house and broke his 
neck. 


Some extracts from a German order of the 187th In- 
fantry Regiment dated September 21st, 1918, throw an 
interesting light on the mentality of the German soldier 
a t this time: 


The morale and discipline of our men has greatly decreased, on 
account of the elastic-defence tactics leading men to believe that the 
ground is of no value. 


The Divisional Intelligence Staff commenting on these 
orders in a communiqué stated that the decrease in 
discipline and morale was sho-wn by: 


Unnecessary retirements; general conduct of men on leave; riots as 
in Cambrai when officers joined in the same crimes with the men. . . . 
People in Germany blamed for writing to soldiers and referring to the 
war as the" great swindle." 


These statements are significant. They show what 
was beginning to happen to the interior economy of 
the German Army. There 'were still brave Germans 
fighting in the old patriotic way but undoubtedly from 
October on,vard the Gerlnan Army was not ,vhat it had 
been. 
The Battalion held the positions east of Cambrai during 
the day and night of the 9th without experiencing counter- 
attacks or hostile activities, and ,vas then relieved by 
the Seaforth Highlanders of the Third Army. They 
retired to the west of Cambrai and "billeted" in the old 
trench line. The next day they were having a general 
clean-up when H. R. H. the Prince of 'Vales, unheralded, 
looked in on the Battalion. After an informal chat with 
the officers he ,vent on to visit another unit. The 
Battalion remained in this area for ten days. It was 
here that the Battalion learned of the death of l\Iajor- 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 


General Lipsett who was killed and buried close to his 
old command. His death cast a gloom over the ,vhole 
Division; one hundred men represented the Battalion 
a t his funeral. 
'Yhile the Battalion ,vas resting much was happening 
all along the front. The Germans had started to retire 
to a new line and the Battalion on October 20th joined 
in the general advance ,vhich ended with the Armistice. 


FINAL ADVANCE TO MONS 


After Cambrai had fallen the British folIo-wed up their 
success, keeping in touch with the Germans who were 
forced back to the River Selle. There another pitched 
battle took place from October 17th to 25th. ''''hile the 
Battle of the Canal du Nord was in progress the last Battle 
of Ypres had been fought, starting on September 28th. 
These two great pushes north and south forced the Ger- 
mans to withdraw from Lens, Douai and Lille. Into 
this area the Battalion was sent on October 20th to 
follow the retreating enemy, coming by the end of the 
month to the neighbourhood of Valenciennes and partici- 
pating in the last great battle for Valenciennes, Maubeuge 
and l\Ions. 
From Cambrai to l\fons the Battalion had three 
weeks of almost steady moving. There was some 
fighting in the first week of November, during the last 
British battle, but for the most part the task was to 
harass a defeated army and keep it retiring. The demo- 
lition of railways, bridges and roads, the flooding of 
lowlands and the general destruction of the various means 
of communication by the enemy retarded the advance 
probably more than resistance in aqns. 
On October 20th the Battalion had marched back about 
seven miles to Inchy 'where they embused and travelled 
north fifteen Iniles as the cro,v flies to l\fontigny, five 
miles east of Douai. They found the place deserted 
and billeted for the night in a Sanitarium. The next 
day they marched a fe\v miles to Rieulay. Here was a 
different atmosphere. The billeting officer had a new

experience in being besieged by French civilians "Tilling 
and anxious to provide billets. 'Yhen the men marched 
in they found the village bedecked with flags and bunting, 
and the people in the streets crying "Vive Ie Canada!" 
The inhabitants were chiefly older folk and children. 
Apparently through all the years in occupied territory 
they l1ad preserved their sacred tri-colours, "Taiting in 
silence for the day when they could display them again 
with pride. An entry in the Diary by Captain G. D. 
Fleming describes the life of the inhabitants under the 
German heel: 


The Battalion in small groups listens with more or less compre- 
hension to t.he cruelties and annoyances to which the inhabitants had 
been subjected by the detested enemy. They told of the requisitioning 
scheme, under which they were deprived of their horses, cattle, pigs, 
poultry and grain, which they were forced to cultivate and of which 
they received no share for their labour; of the taking of all copper, brass 
and nickel articles, down to doorknobs; of the forcing of boys of fourteen 
years to work at trench-digging; of the fines and punishments, including 
imprisonment, for even slight infractions of the rigid rules of occupation; 
in short, the story of their virtual ensla\-ement. 


The next day the Battalion marched to Hornaing, 
half-way between Douai and Valenciennes, another town 
in holiday mood, no t>ne apparently doing any work. 
The people's time seelned divided between celebrating 
their release and procuring food. The soldiers were 
generous with their rations; consequently the inhabitants 
were often seen carrying bread or tins of bully beef or 
the little white bags of biscuits and iron rations. But 
under the surface of hilarity was an infinite pathos. 
The Battalion moved on to .Aremberg. The Third 
Canadian Division had passed through the First Division, 
the 7th and 9th Brigades leading and the 8th Brigade in 
reserve. The Division had cleared the Forêt de Raismes 
to the north of Valenciennes on October 23rd, and was 
soon on the west bank of the Canal de I'Escaut between 
Condé and Valenciennes. Here they halted and waited 
for the general attack to be delivered on Kovember 1st. 
The Battalion remained at Aremberg training and pro- 
viding working parties until the 30th when it relieved the 
52nd Battalion and two companies of the 116th Battalion, 
near Raismes. The front was a series of outposts 5,000

THE LAST HUKDRED DAYS 


yards long. :\10st of the area had been flooded by the 
Germans and the natural obstacles to the attack across 
the Canal on 
ovember 1st looked almost insurmount- 
able. 'Yith the exception of built-up roads no part of 
the Canal could be approached without getting into 
water waist-high. All the bridges had been demolished, 
the Germans had excellent machine gun emplacements 
on the east bank of the Canal, and their position seemed 
invulnerable. The Third Division attacked on the left 
with one Brigade, the 8th, at Anzin and Bruay, and the 
Fourth Division attacked on their right at Valenciennes. 
The last day of October was quiet. The Battalion 
was shifted about to equalize the frontage and sent out 
patrols to draw the enemy. The attack on November 
1st was entirely different from anything heretofore ex- 
perienced. It was in1possible to rush the enemy who 
was comfortably lodged on the other side of the water 
barrier. The Battalion had literally to s,vim and raft 
its way across, and the individual exploits read more 
like fiction than fact. 
On the evening of November 1st patrols started to 
reconnoitre for ways and means of crossing the canal at 
the various bridge-heads and d
aling with the machine- 
gun nests. A patrol sent out to get in touch with the 
1st C. 1\1. R. Battalion on the left, ran foul of one of the 
1st C. l\I. R. posts in the dark, was mistaken for the 
enemy, and had five lnen ,younded before the error could 
be corrected. l\Iajor C. H. l\IcLean and one other rank 
succeeded in some miraculous manner in crossing the 
canal on a raft. As soon as they touched the opposite 
bank they were fired on from a lnachine-gun a fe,v yards 
distant. :\Iajor l\IcLean killed one of the gunners with 
his revolver and held the rest of the cre,v at bay until 
his runner returned to the opposite bank for assistance. 
C. S. 
1. Goodchild and a party of fifteen, under a rifle 
grenade barrage, crossed the canal on a raft and with 
::\Iajor l\IcLean rushed the post and captured the gun 
with its crew of ten. Simultaneously and with equal 
intrepidity Lieutenant 'V. Nodwell swam the canal, 
established a post and enabled a party to thro,v a bridge

across. The establishment of these two posts by l\lajor 
McLean and Lieutenant Nodwell procured 600 yards on 
the east bank of the canal, ,vhich was a very substantial 
footing and had a decisive effect on subsequent operations. 
Brigadier-General D
yer \vho ,vitnessed 1\lajor 1\lcLean's 
exploit, personally recommended him for the D.S.O., and 
the Battalion knew nothing of the award until it ,vas 
announced. 
During the morning of November 2nd, four observers 
under Pte. C. O. Sensabaugh noticed a party of the enemy 
bringing up machine-guns into a cemetery. It was im- 
possible to reach them by rifle fire so they crossed the 
canal into Ko-1\Ian's-Land and crawled 600 yards 
through the cemetery surprising and capturing the entire 
personnel of the post. 
The attack of the Fourth Division to the south had 
been successful and the Battalion was ordered to cross 
the canal in strength if possible without losses. Patrols 
were sent out but reported that the enelny controlled 
the bridge-heads and ,vas too strongly emplaced along 
the opposite bank of the canal. The situation during the 
morning and afternoon of the 3rd was little changed. 
At 6.30 p.m. a message ,vas received from the Brigade 
ordering the 5th C. 1\1. R. Battalion to advance through 
the Battalion's right company to Onnaing on the Valen- 
ciennes-l\lons road keeping in touch with the Fourth 
Division on the right and working north to occupy Vicq. 
This moyement a voided the flooded marshes east of 
Bruay. The Battalion was ordered to advance in con- 
junction with the 5th C. 1\1. R. and make good the rail- 
way embankment of the Valenciennes-Mons railway 
where it crossed the canal. The task was allotted to two 
companies; "C" Company to work around the left and 
" D" Company around the right. " B" Company 'vas 
divided .and two platoons were to support the attacking 
companIes. 
At 5.00 a.m. the companies moved forward. At 7.00 
a.m. the officer commanding "C" Company reported 
that he had reached his objective. Some resistance from 
a machine-gun was encountered, but the men dislodged

it, driving its crew down the raihvay and into a house. 
Lieutenant C. L. 'V. Kicholson was killed and Lieutenant 
N. E. l\IcDonald and five other ranks ,vounded. Lieu- 
tenant Kicholson had risen from the ranks by virtue of 
his ability as a soldier. He was ,vounded in January 
and killed \vithin a fe,v days of the anniversary of his 
joining the Battalion. He was the last officer in the 
Battalion to give his life on the field of battle. His loss 
-particularly at such a time-was keenly felt by his 
men and fellow officers. 
"D" Company was unable to make good its objective, 
being held up by opposition from a slag pile on the 5th 
C. M. R. front. During the night the slag pile was 
bombarded and the next morning the enemy was driven 
out. He retaliated with 5. 9's and gas shells, killing three 
men and \vounding fifteen. The rain came down in 
torrents as on the previous night; the next day the water 
had risen over all the flooded area. The Battalion 
advanced to Vicq about three miles east of Bruay and the 
canal, reassembling at 3.00 p.m. On November 6th the 
Third and Fourth Divisions attacked together, but the 
Battalion was not employed except to form a defensive 
flank for the 5
nd Battalion which was still west of the 
canal at Condé. The attack was successful and at 6.00 
p.m. orders were received to advance. The 
nd C. M. R. 
had gone through on the 5th and secured its objective 
and the Battalion ,vas to push on and join them in an 
attack on the 7th. The Battalion went forward during 
the inky-black night of the 6th-7th about nine kilometres, 
some along the railway track which had been blown up 
in a score of places, others along the main road. It was 
due only to their splendid discipline and excellent leader- 
ship that they ever found their assembly positions. 
The attack on the morning of the 7th was timed for 
8.00 o'clock. The Battalion and the 
nd C. 1\1. R. 
crossed the only available bridge over the Honnelle River 
and assembled roughly on the Belgian border, the Battal- 
ion attacking along the 1\Ions road and the 2nd C. 
1. R. 
to the north. Attached to it ,vas one battery of heavr 
machine-guns, two platoons of cyclists, and one fOr\\?ard

section of the 9th Canadian Field Artillery. The Battal- 
ion atta-cked on a two company frontage, "A" Company 
on the right, "C" Company on the left, "B" Company 
in support and "D" Company in reserve. By 9.00 a.m. 
"A" Company had gained touch with the enemy at the 
village of Thulin. The 2nd Canadian Division was in 
touch ,vith them on their right; "C" Company ,vas 
also at Thulin although held up by machine-guns in the 
village. It was known before the attack that the enemy 
had withdrawn but it was too late to alter the barrage. 
Thulin was out of range and although the attached section 
of artillery went into action on the J.\Ions road and did 
splendid shooting, heavier artillery was needed to deal 
with the machine-guns protected by the houses. Every- 
thing was out of range on account of the rapidity of the 
advance of the infantry. 
The BattaIion closed in on the village as much as pos- 
sible by means of short rushes. The companies waited 
the remainder of the day for artillery support which they 
had been asking for in every message but which never 
came. In the evening the 7th Brigade came up and the 
Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry relieved them. 
At 10.00 p.m. they marched out in the mud from their 
last action to billets in Blanc l\{isseron near Quievrechain. 
The Patricia's surprised the enemy during the night in 
Thulin and occupied the town. The garrison of 300 
fled before they could be rallied and a line was established 
b
y morning on the eastern outskirts of the village. 
This type of fighting was typical of the last few days; 
a half-hearted stand by day and a retirement by night. 
The rest of the Division pursued the Germans to the gates 
of l\Ions. The war was over for the Ba ttalion. It 
followed in the train of the Division for the next four 
days and joined in the triumphant entry into l\{ons. 
During November 8th and 9th the Battalion was 
billeted in the office buildings and in the hospital of a 
steel plant. The men were very 'weary, they had had 
little rest for a week; after getting across the canal they 
had marched all night and had gone into action without 
sleep so that they had been continuously on the move for 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 


two days and nights. By the 10th they were ready for 
the road again and moved to St. Ghislain in the densely- 
populated area about five miles west of :\Ions. En route 
the Battalion worked on the Valenciennes-l\Ions road 
filling craters and shell holes. The companies took turns 
in \vorking on this broad highway with its paved centre 
and tall trees, while the field kitchens ambled along and 
supplied hot meals. As the companies moved into 
billets the enemy dropped a few shells into the town 
causing the last casualties in the Battalion; Lieutenant 
A. E. Griffin, two other ranks and several civilians \vere 
wounded. 
And now the men became more concerned with the 
civilians than 'with the military situation. They were 
in Belgium and while their experience may have been 
local, they were struck by the difference in conditions on 
either side of the border. If the war had continued 
longer than it did and there had been the same resistance 
in Belgium as in France, conditions might have been 
the same, for after all Y pres was in Belgium. The village 
of Quievrechain, just inside the French border, was a 
devastated ruin with a famished population, while a few 
hundred yards away, in Belgium, the village of Quevrain 
was intact with scores of able bodied men in the streets. 
The shops were stocked with food and luxuries, and along 
the l\lons road the men sa\v, for the first time in months, 
flocks of sheep, herds of cattle and even poultry. The 
mines \vere not flooded and to all outward appearance 
'were working as usual. The factories and sugar refineries 
were not demolished nor was the machinery moved to 
Germany. The homes and the railway stations did not 
show the effect of wanton destruction as in Valenciennes 
a fe\v miles away. However, the civilians looked on the 
Canadian soldiers as their libera tors and treated them as 
such. There was the saIne gaiety and holiday-making 
as in France. 
On November 11th the Division \vas fighting for 
possession of l\Ions. There had been rumours the day 
before that an Armistice had been signed but no con- 
firmation had been received. At 8.00 8.m. a special

Despatch Rider arrived from the Brigade advising that 
the German authorities had accepted the Allies' terms 
and that hostilities 'vould cease at 11.00 a.m. \vhen all 
troops would stand fast. 
The war ended at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh 
day of the eleventh month, nineteen hundred and 
eighteen. 



CHAPTER IX 


ARMISTICE TO DEMOBILIZATION 


I N the earlier days, 'when the armies 'were dead- 
locked and no end ,vas in sight, the men talked 
of the day when all would be over; they dis- 
cussed what their feelings might be, ho,v they 
would act, ho,v they would celebrate. And 
when it did come their reactions were disappointing 
even to themselves. By a curious paradox, the great 
celebrations ,vere at hOlne, in the big cities, while the 
men at the front had little to say and the nearer they 
were to the enemy the less demonstrative they were. To 
them it meant so much that nothing could express their 
feeling at the first announcement of the Armistice. As 
soon as they came into contact with the civilians in the 
towns, ho,vever, they gave vent to their eillotions and 
joined in the riotous celebrations of Peace. 
The Battalion marched into l\Ions on November 12th 
and ,vas billeted in the town with Headquarters at No.4 
Grande Place. Gaiety ruled the hour, gratitude was on 
the lips of every inhabitant, proclamations were posted 
in complimentary recognition of the liberators of l\Ions. 
Speeches by aldermen and deputies ,vere printed and 
distributed pronouncing the indebtedness of Belgium. 
One discourse given by l\Ionsieur Save on the day of the 
deliverance of l\Ions was subsequently printed and posted 
and is given here in literal translation: "'V e respect- 
fully bow, with deep elnotion, before the graves of your 
comrades. In this moment we engrave on our hearts 
the remembrance of what they were and of what they 
ha ve done for us, in order to hand down to our children 
and to the grandchildren of our children, the richest 
of heritages. In this hour, alas, over there beyond

the Atlantic, there are mothers, fathers, wives, children, 
s\veethearts, brothers and sisters, who await those 
who will never return, not even knowing that they 
rest here. From our hearts we send across the ocean 
a warm, fraternal embrace. These families that we 
knO'w through the heroism of their sons, 'we hold to 
our grateful breasts. Please God that they find con- 
solation before the sad news reaches them. Tell them, 
we pray you, that this little corner of Belgian soil is 
sacred to both of us, that it is part of Canada, a priceless 
jewel, set in the midst of the resting place of our own, 
for it holds in its bosom the remains of noble children of 
Canada. Our heads bo,v before their tOlnbs, but our 
hearts, proud at being defended by them, shall cling 
together to be the faithful guardians of the sacred rest of 
your Brothers in Arms." 
It \vas the good fortune of the Battalion to be in l\lons 
for a month after the Armistice. It was one of the fav- 
oured places, probably because of its historical connection 
'with the British Army as the place where they first 
crossed s\vords ,vith the German hordes in 1914. Its 
name \vas always coupled with the first retreat and it ,vas 
the natural place to celebrate victory. There were 
reviews, inspections and visits by many celebrities. 
Follo\ving General Currie's entry on Kovember 11th, 
l\Iajor-General Horne, commanding the First Army, made 
an official visit. He ,vas received by the Burgomaster 
of l\Ions, the Councillors and other officials in their robes 
of office. After speeches there ,vas a lnarch-past in front 
of the Hotel de Yille, where a telnporary platfornl as 
saluting base, was erected. The parade was an ilnpres- 
sive military spectacle. It lasted two hours, every unit 
in the Army ,vas represented, the Battalion sending two 
officers and eighty other ranks under Captain K. V. 
'Yaddell. On K ovember 27th His l\Iajesty, Albert King 
of the Belgians, lnade an official entry. The Canadian 
Corps provided a Guard of IIonour and picketted the 
road along \vhich he passed in a motor. A week later, 
His l\Iajesty King George V, passed through, unofficially. 
He descended from his motor at the entrance to the 



AR
1ISTICE TO DEMOBILIZATIOX 


Grande Place and walked through the pressing crowds to 
the road leading to Brussels. 
On all of these occasions, the to,vn was filled ,vith 
soldiers and civilians who lined the decorated roads, 
cheering their King and Generals. They ,vere gay days; 
the cafés swarmed with patrons who continued to cele- 
brate, the waiters gaye change in the paper currency of 
four or more countries which yied in colour and variety 
with the liquors of the estaminets. The theatres were 
opened and the celebrated "Dumbells" played "H.1I.S. 
Pinafore" to cro".ded houses. This company, with many 
of the same personnel who played at :\Ions, is still in 
existence. 
The men ,vere kept fit by continuous physical and 
recreational training. As soon as they began to think of 
their post-war vocations the ...\rmy ,vas ready ,vith a com- 
prehensive scheme of education. It embraced the re- 
training of men in the skilled trades and the re-fitting of 
men for professional life. Throughout the \\.inter a 
curriculum of educational training was pursued. ::\Iany 
interesting lectures on economical and historical subjects 
",-ere given by men specially chosen for this ,york. 
The military ball given by the officers of the Third 
Canadian Division on December 9th at the Palace 
d' Aremberg, in Brussels, 'was a brilliant function. It had 
an historical significance in being the first to be given by 
the British since the Duchess of Richlnond's famous ball 
from which 'Yellington went to meet Napoleon at 'Yater- 
100. It reflected the strange turn of events in a hundred 
years. As in June, 1815, all the prominent citizens of 
Brusse]
 were invited. The officials of the to,,-n added 
colour in their robes of office, fair and beautiful ladies 
gave chann to the setting. 
Iany officers of surrounding 
British forces were invited and in all a thousand people 
danced to the international lllusic. There ,vere other 
halls with less pOlnp and grandeur, but equally successful. 
The officers of the Battalion gave a dance in the Hotel 
de Ville, on December 5th. It was one of many similar 
entertainments ,vhich dosed this gay period in :\lon8.

152 4TH CANADIAN IVIOUNTED RIFLES 
Battalion going with the Army of Occupation to the 
Rhine, it was finally known that the Third Division 
was to return to Canada. Its departure from Belgium 
and France was accomplished in easy stages. The Bat- 
talion marched at intervals east from l\Ions and north, 
circling around the Battlefield of 'Vaterloo, returning 
west to the Roubaix, Tournai and Lille area from ,vhich 
they entrained to Ie Havre whence they crossed the channel 
to England. This gentle exodus took exactly two months. 
On December 11 th, after one month in J.\tlons, the Battalion 
marched to Morlanwelz and in the next five days to 
Luttre, Yieux Genappe and Chapelle St. Lambert, five 
miles east of the Battlefield of 'Yaterloo. From the 16th 
to the 29th, they rested in this rolling country, with 
scenery not unlike Ontario. The men visited the historic 
surroundings and parties took the tram at l\Iont St. 
Jean into Brussels. 
Their last Christmas on foreign soil was spent in these 
rural biIJets. Parcels arrived from Canada and were 
opened at the Christmas dinner which was served by 
companies in a large Hall in the village. The tales are 
many of this dinner of roast pork, in lieu of unobtainable 
turkeys, and the potent punch, but the crowning item 
was the announcement by the commanding officer that 
the Battalion 'was to move west to a seaport and thence 
to Canada and demobilization. This magic word was 
the keynote of the day. It was, naturally, the most 
joyful of the four Christmas Days the Battalion spent at 
the Front. There was another dance in the evening, 
the men found accomplished dancers in the Belgian 
lasses of the village, who went in wooden shoes and the 
most of them without stockings, because the Germans 
had long since taken all the "rool out of Belgium. Their 
sabots were soon discarded, at the demand of the 
strenuous music of the Battalion Pipers. 
On December 29th they moved west past 'Vaterloo 
to Rhode-St. Genèse, where they \vere billeted in the 
large paper factory of l\'Iadame de Meurs, who enter- 
tained the officers at dinner and is remembered as a 
charming and generous hostess. The next day they 



AR1\fISTICE TO DEl\10BILIZA TION 153 
marched to Goyck, \vhere they rested long enough to see 
the Xe\v Year in. The officers had their mess in the 
Château de SafHeburg, whose Châtelain, the Baron von 
Oldeneel, gave his wines of rarest vintage for the New 
Year's dinner, of which he was the genial host. 
In four days the Battalion moved due west through 
Lierde St. Martin, Renaix, Herrines to Dottignies, \vhere 
they arrived on January 4th and remained for a month. 
Dottignies is a small to\vn in a densely populated indus- 
trial area on the Belgian frontier five miles east of 
Tourcoing and Roubaix. The inhabitants were very 
friendly and the Battalion soon became acquainted by the 
immediate inauguration of a dance. The Belgian youths 
who had been expatriated by the Germans were returning 
daily to their former employment in the mills and fields; 
a football match between them and the Battalion added 
to the friendly influences which made the rest at Dottig- 
nies so pleasant. About the middle of the month, 
General Sir Arthur Currie visited the Brigade and explain- 
ed that the Third and Fourth Divisions had not relieved 
the First and Second in Germany because of the difficulties 
in transportation and that the Third Division had been 
chosen to return to Canada first. This was the last stop 
of any duration in Belgium. The month was occupied 
with the preparation of nominal rolls, inspections and 
medical boards, sports and vocational training, and 
finally, on February 6th, they moved to Blandain and 
handed over their horses at Renaix. On the 9th thev 
marched to Baisieux on the Franco-Belgian border b
- 
twee
 Lille and Tournai, 'where they entrained the same 
evenIng. 
The Battalion travelled from Belgium across Northern 
France, which many knew only too well, to Ie Havre, 
'where they arriyed t\VO days later. Two days and nights 
in the same train, which was a typical troop-train, gave 
rise to many humorous incidents on this last ride out of 
the country. The train soon became a personal thing. 
Early in the trip the men began calling the engine "Rod", 
and the train "Rod's Train." "Rod" became less 
mechanical as the journey progressed, he \vould rear up

and suddenly bolt, throwing everyone off their feet and 
upsetting the stoves, and just as the sno\v-clad fields 
"rould begin to pass in quick succession and become 
blurred in the revolving landscape, "Rod" would take a 
whimsical turn and slow down to a ridiculous pace. It 
is told how a Brigade Captain placed his trust in "Rod" 
and went in search of food at one of the halts and was 
left behind, but kno,ving "Rod's" weakness for halts, 
pursued him on foot and eventually caught hÏIn asleep 
on a siding. The troops passed over the old battlefields, 
covered ,vith the winter's blanket, through Picardy and 
Normandy to the seaport of Ie Havre, where they 
remained for three days and then crossed the Channel to 
'Ve:ymouth, dis-embarking on the Inorning of February 
14th and entraining for Bramshott. 
The next three weeks in England were weeks of docu- 
mentation, medical boards, inspections, leave and edu- 
cational training. Everyone was impatient to get home 
and be demobilized. The time seemed endless but 
rumours of final inspection before departure buoyed up 
the restless spirits and finally, on 1\Iarch 7th, in a terrific 
do,vnpour of rain, Brigadier-General D. L. Draper, 
C.1\1. G., D. S. 0., presented the King's Colour to Lieu- 
tenant ,Yo A. 1\IacLachlan and the Battalion Colour to 
Lieutenant A. E. Dyke. Promptly at three in the after- 
noon, as General Draper came on the ceremonial parade, 
the Battalion gave the general salute. The Colour was 
presented and then consecrated by l\Iajor Barton. It was 
an impressive ceremony which was carried out in spite 
of the unsympathetic rain in such a smart and creditable 
manner that General Draper, in an address to the troops, 
complimented them on their discipline and appearance 
and paid glowing tribute to their splendid record at the 
Front. He commented on the unusually large number 
of casualties \vhich the Battalion had suffered and con- 
gratulated the few" originals" who had the good fortune 
to return with the unit. Only two officers (Lieu t.- 
Colonel 'V. R. Patterson, D.S.O., and Lieutenant C. Lea, 
1\I.C.), and thirty men of the original unit returned. 
Four other officers (Captain L. B. Bumstead, 1\I.C.,

l\I.C. and Lieutenant F. B. Fairbrother) who came back 
with the unit, ,vent over in the ranks. . 
Receiving the Colour was the last event in the Battalion 
annals overseas. The following day they entrained at 
Liphook for Liverpool, were addressed by the Lord 
l\fayor of Liverpool, who spoke of the new bond between 
the Mother country and the DOlninions and \vished the 
troops bon voyage. Together \vith other units of the 
Third Division, they went aboard the S. S. Carmania, 
which weighed anchor in the darkness of the 9th and in 
the early morning was leaving behind the emerald fields 
of Cork and Kerry on its \vay to Halifax. 
The men began to crowd the decks with the breaking 
of dawn on l\Iarch 17th to catch the first glimpse of 
Canada. At 8.80 a.m. the massed bands of the 8th 
Brigade were playing as the Carrnania warped into the 
dock. Officials, newspaper reporters and telegraph repre- 
sentatives came on board and it was not until afternoon 
that the Battalion was despatched on two trains which 
divided at l\Ioncton, the first going by the southern and

they rejoined and proceeded to the North Toronto 
station, arriving at 8.00 p.m. on l\Iarch 20th, the second 
train pulling in fifteen minutes behind the first. 
Toronto was the home of the Battalion and the citv 
had prepared to \velcome back its own. Thousands 
f 
relatives cro\vded the station, throngs lined the streets 
and swelled the Armouries, making one of the greatest 
ovations \vhich the city ever witnessed. The Battalion 
with difficulty formed up on Y onge Street, wearing their 
steel helmets and war regalia and marched in column-of- 
route to Bloor Street, through Queen's Park to the 
Armouries. In front of the Parlialnent Buildings, Brig- 
adier-General J. Gunn, Commanding 
Iilitary District 
No.2, was waiting with his staff and other officials on a 
saluting base and for the last time the Battalion gave 
" eyes left." A t the _\rmouries families and friends 
swarmed in, surrounded the Battalion and captured 
it with a last outburst of welcolne. Lieut.-Colonel
